Four-pint bridge bid
ALL are welcome to help with the construction of one more raft for Ely's mammoth four-pint bridge challenge.
The Ely Standard is inviting readers to join us in our car park at 38 Market Street today (Thursday) from 10am till noon) where organiser Jack Waterfall will be constructing a pontoon for his record-breaking milk bottle bridge.
A dedicated team is collecting four-pint milk bottles to stitch together into rafts. When enough rafts have been assembled, they will be stitched together to create a bridge across the Great Ouse.

The aim is to highlight how much packaging can be recycled and, to date, the team has collected a total of 7,800 four-pinters, which have been donated by schools and businesses from across the district.
Eleven rafts have been created and volunteers are welcome to come along and help out with this incredible project.
