Peterborough branch of the Inland Waterways Association [IWA] has made a donation towards the cost of the creation of public visitor moorings at Benwick on the Middle Level system of waterways.

A cheque for £1080 was handed over by branch chairman Alastair Chambers to Jeff Walters, commodore of the Middle Level Watermen’s Club, at a branch meeting held at Peterborough on 19th January.

Alastair Chambers said “Peterborough branch IWA has fully supported the project to create public visitor moorings at Benwick and has been happy to donate its share of the profits of the IWA National Festival held at St. Ives in 2007 towards this local project”.
