Members of IWA Chester & District branch were delighted to be joined by Mrs Fiona Bruce, MP for Congleton, on Saturday, 16th April at their Lock Wind in Middlewich. 

Mrs Bruce, who recently became a member of the IWA, listened to concerns about the funding underpinning the proposed changes to British Waterways and promised to take those concerns back to Westminster.

IWA Chester Branch members worked boats through Wardle Lock in Middlewich for the whole weekend. As well as raising funds it also enabled us to raise awareness about waterways issues with the boaters going through whilst giving out IWA membership leaflets.
