Green Flag Awards
The local canal ' waterway has been again 'audited' by Green Flag (Keep Britain Tidy). I am 'reliably informed' that everything is looking positive and the Trust plus Volunteers have achieved the award again (I believe that an official Canal & River Trust press release is due) Well done ALL!
Boat Festival weekend
The Volunteer Lock Keepers based in Audlem were joined over a four day period with some volunteers from other areas to cover 'assistance as required' in helping manage water usage and assist passing boat traffic through the multitude of moored classic boat traffic between lock 12 down to lock 15. Our help and assistance was 'much appreciated by all'
Over Friday & Saturday the volunteers were joined by a young lady who is involved with the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme 'Gold Award' Ellie is in her final stages of achieving the award, she was a total delight to have with the team over the two day period.
Well done all.
