This marks the most important achievement to date for the Society with the first section of the canal restored, re-lined and re-watered. We hope you will join us in celebrating this milestone. We would also like to thank you all for your continued support, help and hard work getting us to this point. We could not have achieved what we have without this from our Volunteers, Members, Partners, Landowners, Patrons, Trustees (Past and Present), Funders and Supporters. Please arrive at 2pm for a ribbon cut at 2:15pm.
