Just a quick note to point out that the Lichfield and Hatherton Canal Restoration Trust are holding their Annual General Meeting tonight (Friday, 5th June 2015) in Brownhills, at the Parkview Centre (the old Council House on the Miner Island), and all are welcome to attend.
There will also be a talk by David Penny of the Herefordshire and Gloucestershire Canal Trust after the meeting.
If you’ve been thinking about supporting the trust or volunteering, this is a great way to find out more about them and what they do. You can find out more about volunteering on the project from this excellent blog post by Christine Howles.
At the moment, the volunteers are currently beavering away on the route of the lost line between Barracks Lane, Ogley Hay and The Boat restaurant, on the Lichfield Road at Summerhill, opening the route for walkers.
