Uttoxeter Canal February work party cancelled

Dear all

Given the recent poor weather conditions it has been decided that the work party scheduled to take place on Thursday of this week, 13th February, will be cancelled. Our plan was to return to the Crumpwood area to continue the work begun last time, clearing and burning vegetation, as well using a "Tirfor" winch to remove some of the larger tree stumps around Carrington's Lock. However this area is extremely wet under foot due to the rain and snow earlier this week, so with more rain forecast throughout Thursday morning we have decided that it would not be productive or potentially safe to attempt to carry on with the planned task.

We will instead return to the site on Thursday 12th March and I will send a message nearer to the date to remind our volunteers about the work party.

Best regards
