Uttoxeter Canal - change of plan for tomorrow

Dear all

We have a late change of plan for tomorrow's volunteer activity. Unfortunately I am unable to attend tomorrow as I am supporting a work client with a critical issue which I cannot delegate to anyone else. I'm hugely grateful to Rupert who has agreed at no notice to lead our group instead. Related to this, the order of tasks for September and October has been reversed and the group will instead be meeting at Alton. We will return to Bridge 70 in October for the task described in last night's message.

Accordingly, the meeting point has changed to be at on Farley Lane near to Alton Station for a 10am start. For those using satnav, put in ST10 4BY. The work site is a short walk from this spot. There is parking off-road down a slope parallel to the former railway line, opposite the station.

If anyone was planning to arrive at Denstone by public transport can you please let me know tonight and I'll arrange a lift to Alton.

I apologise for the late notice, and can assure you that this decision was not taken lightly, or until I was sure that there was no way that I would be able to attend.

Best regards,
Steve
