Annual General Meeting

Our guest on the evening will be (SonACS member!) Richard Parry, CEO of the Canal and River Trust, who will provide us with an update of activities on the network. He will hopefully have news of the serious breach on the Middlewich branch, along with the situation at Minworth, a bit closer to home.

 

 
 

 

THE MEETINGS

Our meetings are on the third Thursday of the month at "The Navigation" in Wootton Wawen, starting at 7:30pm.

Many members have a meal in the pub beforehand, meeting at 6:00pm.
If you want to meet at 'The Navigation' for a meal beforehand from 6:00pm, please either e-mail Alasdair Lawrance, or phone (01564) 783766

It is an excellent pub, and we're quite lucky to have it for our meetings.

To cover speaker expenses, we have a £1 per ticket raffle at the meetings, with the prize of a bottle of wine. Although coffee is no longer provided in the interval, it is available at the bar along with other drinks.
