Readers will well remember an article on the dangers of lead poisoning. That’s why petrol is now unleaded, paints no longer contain lead compounds and soft soldered lead fittings have been banned from drinking water supply lines. Geoff was good enough to inspect the external pipes delivering water to our library (the home base of TACE (Tilligerry Adult and Community Education) and found that they did indeed have soft soldered ‘Yorkshire’ fittings. The volunteers at TACE and the library now flush the taps before filling the electric jug or drinking a glass of water. In seeking more background information News Of The Area contacted ‘The Lead Group Inc.’ which sought permission to re-run our article in one of their journals. What’s more, they wanted to enter Geoff’s picture in the ‘Volcano Art Prize’, another lead awareness promotion. The judges must have been impressed as a glazed ceramic mug with his picture on it turned up via a courier. We will track our intrepid plumber down and present him with his prize. Public health warnings about lead poisoning can be found through your preferred search engine. By Geoff WALKER Geoff’s Volcano Art Prize coffee mug. Geoff’s Volcano Art Prize coffee mug.
