Cheshire Locks Working Party

We will be continuing work at on Locks 44-46 of the Red Bull flight. We hope to finish off lock 44 and  start lock 45.

Parking will be available at CRT Red Bull offices, Congleton Road South, Church Lawton, Stoke-on-Trent ST7 3AP. Their car park entrance is diagonally opposite (i.e. other side of the road and other side of the canal  bridge) the Red Bull pub. Bus route is First No. 3 Hanley – Crewe to Red Bull crossroads. Train to Kidsgrove then along the canal towpath.  Toilet facilities will be available. 

Meet at 10 a.m. and, given good weather, we will work through to 3 p.m. If you are able to stay all day, please bring a packed lunch and drink. Wear clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty or paint on and wear stout footwear. Have a waterproof in case of rain.
The Canal and River Trust have drawn up a new set of Covid-19 related Heath and Safety protocols and safe methods of working to maintain social distancing as required. These guidelines (not sharing tools, brushes etc., and with one volunteer working on each gate, rail etc. at any one time) mean that It would be very helpful if you could advise John Lawson that you are planning to attend so that all the tools, equipment, lifejackets etc. can be provided.

Annual General Meeting & Talks

Sadly, we are currently unable to schedule any physical meetings because of Covid-19 regulations.

Once these regulations allow meetings, our committee will start planning future physical meetings, both our AGM and our season of talks. So, for the moment, “watch this space” or check the latest edition of our members’ magazine “Grand Trunk”.
