Many members are aware that the overrunning costs at Studley Grange have had a severe impact on the Trust financial reserves and I hope as many of you as possible are able to help build up these reserves again.
On a more upbeat note meetings with local landowners are proving very positive as they realise the difference we are making to our local communities and the environment as we progress the restoration of the line from Melksham through to Foxham. I hope to have news to share on new sites to work on in the coming few months.
As the longest canal restoration project in the UK we clearly need as many volunteers as we can get to help progress the restoration along the line in our area. If you are able to help either physically at work parties/ events or are able to help behind the scenes with fund raising or research please do get in touch - your help is vital to our progress.
