Subject: Events and Campaigns this summer.
HISTORY TALK - THE DARK SIDE OF THE REGENT'S CANAL
Tomorrow evening Lester Hillman will be giving a free, illustrated history talk about the financial crises that nearly wrecked the construction of the Regent's Canal two hundred years ago.This talk is at Holborn Library (WC1X 8PA) at 7:15pm on 4th August. Follow this link for details.
ANGEL CANAL FESTIVAL
The next major event on the canal will be the Angel Canal Festival on Sunday 6th September. This will attract thousands of visitors and is yet another networking opportunity for canal supporters.If you would like to volunteer to help with the running of this festival then please send an e-mail to Beryl Windsor (email@example.com). If you would like to help with preparing or manning our own stall at that event then please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
RESUSCITATION OF DEAD DOG BASIN
The Camden markets are under new ownership and are undergoing huge changes. Our focus is on the Dead Dog Basin and we are campaigning to protect it as a canal resource. The new owners have inherited a proposal that allowed a restaurant to encroach on the basin and there has been an ongoing assumption that the basin was derelict. If we can coordinate our ideas effectively then we will be in a position to offer a win-win proposal that will benefit the canal, the market owners and local residents. Further details are available on these pages.
Our last meeting took place at Holborn Studios on 6th July. One of the main topics was the aggressive pace of change along the canal and some of the slides are available on this page.
NEXT PUBLIC MEETING
Our next meeting is likely to take place in mid September. If you would like anything to be added to the agenda then please send an email to email@example.com.
KING'S CROSS MOORING CONSULTATION
A consultation is underway to gather public feedback on proposals for visitor moorings in the King's Cross area. The deadline for comments is 7th September and a copy of the proposals is available here.
