Eric and Doreen’s LHCRT All Day Easter Coffee Morning


Lichfield’s canal trust is offering an Easter Saturday day-out with a difference.

Eric Wood, President of Lichfield and Hatherton Canals Restoration Trust, and his wife Doreen have extended an open invitation to their all-day Easter Coffee Morning on Saturday March 31st 2018.

Admission is free to the event, which will run from 10am to 4pm, at 6 Swan Cottages, Burton Road, Whittington.

Coffee and tea will be on offer to wash down cakes and treats from the barbecue, while proceeds from book, bric-a-brac and LHCRT souvenir sales will also go towards the Trust’s Tunnel Vision campaign.

Visitors are also invited to simply enjoy the garden or take a stroll along the canal.

The Trust is raising £1million to construct a tunnel under the Cross-City Lichfield to Birmingham railway line at the same time as a railway bridge over the planned extension of the Southern Bypass is put in place, probably late next year.

If you’re unaware of the remarkable and large canal restoration project that’s steadily progressing this excellent blog post by Christine Howles explains more about it. The trust run regular work parties and all are very much welcome, whether you’ve a specialist skill or not!
