Towpath tidied!

Monday, November 19th, 2012

Last Saturday a group of liveaboard boaters cleared rubbish from the towpath between Dundas and Bathampton, with the help of the Kennet and Avon Canal Trust’s work boat crew. The photo shows the group unloading the rubbish from the ‘Vale of Pewsey’ at Bathampton at the end of the day. There are plans to do another towpath tidy at the end of January, probably between Widbrook and Hilperton. If you want to help, email or ring/text 07928 078208. If you want to join the ‘Vale of Pewsey’ volunteers in their task for this winter of cutting back vegetation on the offside between Limpley Stoke and Bath, contact co-ordinator Derrick Hunt
