The Canal and River Trust (CRT) are inviting people who live and work in Audlem to discuss ideas for making more of the canal – to benefit Audlem's community and businesses.
Consultants working for the CRT have also been meeting up with various village groups, including AudlemOnline, in recent days. They and CRT's Wendy Capelle, Waterway Manager, North Wales and Borders Waterway, are also speaking at tomorrow's Parish Council meeting.
The consultants, Andrew Meredith and Alison Caffyn, say:
The canal has been at the heart of Audlem's economy and environment since it was opened in 1835. It attracts many visitors by narrowboat and many more who visit by car, bicycle and enjoy walks in the local area.
If you have any thoughts about improvements for visitor facilities and information, enhancements to the local environment, new business ideas, use of new media, signage, walks, outdoor activities, events, arts and culture, wildlife and how to promote all the things which bring people to Audlem and link with the canal, then please come along and take part in the discussions.
The ideas should be focused around the connections between the canal and village, and take guidance from last year's Neighbourhood Plan put together by the local community.
We'd particularly welcome local businesses and members of local groups who are involved in the environment, arts, culture, events, and outdoor activities – including young people.
Please come along to the Canal and River Trust's workshop on Monday 22nd February at the Methodist Church Hall at 2.00-4.30pm.
If you can't make it in the afternoon do drop by later to have a quick chat and make sure your ideas are included. We shall stay at the Methodist Hall from the end of the workshop at 4.30 until 7.00pm.
