Back in the 1930’s (and for some time before that) the area at the end of Bowden Lane, adjacent to the old railway line was a marshy area that, because of the natural springs, was utilised as Watercress beds. Over time, due to changes in the topography and a reduction in demand the area became a dark, muddy part of the Back Stream that had a strange bubbling spring in the middle of it.
It’s #WorldMentalHealth day and never before have we been made so aware of the invisible problems which impact so many people so seriously. Yet still too many people suffer in silence. Speak up, it’s ok not to be ok – ask for help. You cannot pour from an empty bucket but nor can you cope if your bucket is already full…
Make time for you every day and do something that makes you happy.
