A huge thank you from OWPC goes to all those who took part in the first ever community canal work day. The weather was kind to us, the hard core was delivered in plenty of time and Sonny King from the Canal and River Trust arrived with his “comfort van!” – (mobile refreshments and toilet). Just over a dozen residents turned out, armed with trowels, spades, shovels and wheelbarrows. In less than 2 hours about 50 yards of towpath was repaired, amidst much camaraderie and exchanging of news. All of us went home with a real sense of achievement and talking cheerfully of the next opportunity. If more of you are able to join us for the next event, our whole area of canal will be done in no time. We will keep you posted!
Towpath before ….
…. and after.
