43 attendees benefitted from an excellent talk by Brian Nelson, who is a director of the Shrewsbury and Newport Canals Trust.
He lead the group through the work that has been and is being done on the restoration of a canal which was officially abandoned by the 1944 Act of Parliament.
The benefits of the work of the trust are many, not least to wildlife and to people who can enjoy the waterway again. We are grateful to Brian for his inspirational talk. The engineers in the group were particularly engaged, but all enjoyed it. Many stayed for lunch afterwards to make new friends or catch up with those already made through PALZ.
