Issue date: 17th July 2013
On Thursday 18th June regular IWA North Staffordshire & South Cheshire Branch volunteers supplemented by a number of new volunteers returned to Lawton Locks on the Trent & Mersey canal for the monthly Cheshire Locks work party.
This month’s work party saw the group undertaking vegetation work and painting at Lock 51. After a good deal of hard work and effort, the end result showed a much smarter set of locks with the cobbles on the towpath once again fully displayed. Many thanks to the returning volunteers and the new volunteers who came along for the day and also to CRT for usual support in terms of materials.
Next month, the Branch returns to the Lawton Locks on Saturday 20th July, where they will continue work on Lock 50. For further information visit the Branch web page.
