Subject: Friends of Regent's Canal - preparation for the Angel Canal Festival.

Dear Friends,

On Sunday 7th September the Regent's Canal will welcome thousands of visitors and regular canal users at the Angel Canal Festival. Admission is free and I hope that you can all attend if you are in London that weekend.

In preparation for this major event the Canal and River Trust has organised a volunteering opportunity this Saturday to repaint the City Road Lock and to tidy up litter, vegetation and graffiti. If you or any friends are available then please turn up on the day to take part.

Details can be found on the events page of our website:-

For the fourth year running the Friends of Regent's Canal will have a stall on the towpath below Hanover School. This is an important opportunity to recruit new Friends and to promote our activities. We are looking for help with design, storage and transport of display boards and other items and we will display leaflets for any relevant canal activities that you might want us to share. If you can help in any way, either with the preparation for the festival or with supporting it on the day, then please contact me directly or send an e-mail to

Best wishes,

Ian Shacklock
