WWT EGM November 12th 2019

A notice for an Extraordinary General Meeting of The Whitchurch Waterway Trust has been issued to members. It will be held at The Chester Suite, The Dodington Lodge Hotel, Dodington, Whitchurch SY13 1EN at 1930 on Tuesday 12th November 2019.

It was resolved to convert WWT from a Charity and Company Limited by Guarantee to a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) at the April 2019 AGM. The Extraordinary General Meeting is being held to resolve issues The Charity Commission have raised about our proposed CIO constitution, so that the conversion to a CIO can be progressed.

The formal meeting will be followed by tea and coffee and a discussion about the long term aims of WWT and to explore support for re-establishing the canal as far as Sherrymill Hill (the old gas works site). Please come and tell us your views.

To see further information on both of these issues see the About WWT Page . On that page there is also a link to a set of files that explain much about the history of plans for the canal being extended further into town together with a document with a preliminary, personal, review of the options by DT.

The Whitchurch Gateway

The first phase of the proposed Whitchurch Gateway Scheme at Chemistry is nearing completion. It won’t have escaped the attention of the hundreds of folk that use the Canal Arm into Whitchurch regularly that contractors have been carrying out considerable dredging and consolidation works on the waterway link to the town centre.
