No longer up the creek – Millfield School’s canoe returned!


The boat that I row: Thankfully, Millfield now have their canoe back! Image from Noel Leo Designs.

Earlier today, I had the sad task of requesting help in tracing the scumbags who nicked a canoe and other sporting kit from Millfield School in Catshill, Brownhills.

Well, I’m very glad to say that followinging the appeal, the red canoe was located (apparently at Chasewater) and returned.

Cliff Anderson commented on my appeal earlier:

The canoe has been found and returned. Apparently it was found on Chasewater. Thanks to everyone who kept an eye out.

Great news folks, thank you – in a week where I haven’t had much to smile about, this is a great result for the school and community.

Cheers to all who shared, retweeted and kept a look out. It would be nice to if we could nail the buggers who keep breaking in, so regardless, if you have any info, please do  contact West Midlands Police by dialling 101 or speak to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
