Subject: Friends of Regent's Canal - next meeting, Wednesday 1st June

Dear Friends,

I am pleased to invite you all to the next meeting of the Friends of Regent's Canal on Wednesday 1st June 2011, 7pm to 9pm.

It will be held at the London Canal Museum, 12-13 New Wharf Road, London N1 9RT.

The two main themes at this meeting will be canal freight and the arts. Gerry Heward will give a talk on the canal freight industry and I am hoping that this will help to raise awareness that the canals are still a viable alternative to the road system for transporting certain goods. We will also hear updates from curators, arts officers, musical writers and festival organisers, who will be explaining plans for celebrating the Olympics, the Regent's Canal Bicentenary and the Angel Canal Festival.

I look forward to hearing from you or seeing you at the meeting.

Best wishes,

Ian Shacklock
