Chairman’s EMag – 10th September 2013

Greetings all,

Sunday, 15th September, Fourteen Locks.
This Sunday, the annual Heritage Day takes place. The trip boat will be operating on the pond, there will also be a steam train and many other side stands. Phil and Tom always put on a good show so come and support them.
Volunteers are needed to help with the boat from about 10am, it is always a good day out and we look forward to seeing new faces and old, please see Captains Roger Francis and Tony Pugh when you arrive.

Saturday & Sunday, 21st & 22nd September, Gilwern.
Nigel and Sally from Road House Boats invite all boaters to a revival of the Gilwern Boat Gala. This was big in the past and they are trying to gauge interest for a big one next year. The Bridgend Inn will do pub refreshments on Saturday evening and it is hoped that the Hope Church will be able to offer canalside refreshments from the Old School building on Sunday.

This is a chance for all those critics who say there is nothing happening on the canal to show their colours!

Stop Press!
The Monmouthshire, Brecon and Abergavenny Canals Trust is pleased to announce that it has just been successful in a bid for £64,000 from the Social Community Economic Fund for further restoration and development projects in the Torfaen area.

See you on the Cut,
