20th March 2018 More TSB Fund Raising for WWT

WWT Trustees Joan Crump and Ray Hatton receive a cheque for £500 from Jane Lunt and Kelly Lines of the Whitchurch Branch of the TSB. The cheque represents money raised through various fundraising initiatives run by the TSB staff.

Arm Closure January February 2018

CRT confirmed on January 9th 2018 that from 29th January Canal and River Trust contractors will be putting a dam at the end of the Arm to enable work to be done on the coping stones on the corner.  As they are using lime mortar it takes a while to 'cure' so the stoppage will be 2-3 weeks.  The arm itself will not be closed using stop planks but the dam will make boat access impossible.
