I'll start with some important, if disappointing news. Unfortunately the June work party is cancelled as we do not have a work party leader available. Apologies to our regular volunteers and anyone else who was thinking of attending this month. I'm afraid that work commitments mean that I am not available and on this occasion have not able to arrange cover. We were hoping to continue the work around Bridge 70, where we have made good progress at recent work parties with clearing vegetation on the offside of the canal.
