I love being stopped in the street and told creek stories and shown photos of different creeks on people’s iPhones. No, listen: I really do like it!
The only trouble is knowing what to do with all this information. I feel a certain responsibility but I’m uncertain about where to go with it and how to treat it. So, until I figure it out, I’ve created a Facebook page called Down the Drain. It’s a place for anyone to post their own pictures of drains, creeks and waterways in and around Newcastle.
Look forward to seeing your contributions!
