Subject: Friends of Regent's Canal - events in May

Dear Friends,

This weekend the annual Canalway Cavalcade will be taking place at Little Venice. I hope that you will find time to visit this three-day festival as it is an ideal opportunity to meet boaters and to learn about life on the waterways. For further details please visit the following IWA web page:-

On Wednesday 13th May our next public meeting will take place at the London Canal Museum. We will be discussing wildlife projects and places of interest and we will also hear about volunteer projects to protect and clean up the canal environment. A flyer for this meeting is available on this web page:-

The following weekend there will be a 2-day canal festival at Rickmansworth. This is quite a few miles upstream from the Regent's Canal, but it is easily accessible by tube or water and if you regularly traverse the waterways you should meet some familiar faces. Like the Little Venice festival, this is a convenient meeting place for boaters prior to the start of summer. Details are available on this website: -

I appreciate that many of you are currently distracted by the General Election so I will supply further details about our meeting nearer the time. Meanwhile, please send in any contributions if you would like to raise questions or make announcements.

Best wishes

Ian Shacklock
