If you have a lawn mower that can cope with rough ground, bring it along and practice formation weed topping with a bunch of like minded enthusiasts. Or if you would like to help with manual weeding, there are all the prickly thistles you can cope with, and more besides. For weeding wear gloves, bring a weeding tool (an old chisel works well).

Chidham School: IT tables and chairs to be 'free cycled'
Claire Murphy, head teacher writes: We have up to 8 excellent IT tables that would be a real asset to someone's business.  They are all metal welded in structure with a excellent beech effect wooden top.  They are very good quality and only have one or two odd marks.  The tables are either rectangular or corner units (see attached pictures). The measurements of the rectangular units are: 75cm deep, 164cm wide and 66cm high. We also have 4 computer chairs, that are blue cloth finish and suited to child's height at 40cm high.
I am reluctant to throw them in a skip and would love to see them all rehoused - we don't want any money for them, just want to see them collected and reused! 01243 572380

Spoof News section

(or why you should not believe everything you read on the internet)
What is this word spoof? It has been defined as
1 Nonsense; tomfoolery.
2 A hoax.
3 A gentle satirical imitation; a light parody.
4 The truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
But which is it? Tricky, huh?
If you have a Spoof News Scoop, please send it to us, and we will do our best to include it today, tomorrow, sometime or ......well it depends on our lawyers, who we pay handsomely for their 'I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole' advice.

Spoof news
Currently there is not a lot of spoof news. Sometimes there just isn't any news, but it doesn't stop the BBC from filling a half hour slot with no news and repeating the 'no news' every hour on the hour. Here at Chidham and Hambrook, we tell it like it is.
However, we promise that just as soon as one of us gets round to writing some news, we will let you have it, up to the minute, just as its breaking, raw, unvarnished, cliche free, and without any attempt to hide the earth shattering implications for the local community.
Disappointed?
Have a look at the spoof news archive
