      We've already made a start on the restoration. Last week a contractor took out three self-seeded trees that were damaging the walls of the historic lock in the town. We plan to re-paint the benches this summer too.

      Many thanks for all recent dontations. The fund, with promises, is edging towards the magic £1000 figure and we're already putting it to good use whilst the sun shines. This week we'll be clearing the towpath and lock walls. We have great plans for the summer. Watch this space!
