Uttoxeter Canal March work party cancelled

Dear all

I hate to do this especially as we missed last month due to poor weather and the weather forecast looks reasonable for Thursday, but in line with a number of other organisations, we have decided not to host volunteer activities while advice regarding the Corona virus outbreak remains changeable. Whilst there are no restrictions on us today, we are aware that a number of volunteers are already deciding not to attend events elsewhere and also have to be aware that the advice to us may change in the next few days, meaning that we could not go ahead even if we wanted to. We know that our volunteers like to plan in advance, and would not want to have to make a last minute change of plan, so this seems to be the appropriate course of action in these exceptional circumstances.

When the situation regarding the Corona virus changes, and we are able to resume our activities, I will contact you again. Our next scheduled work party date is 9th April, when I hope that we will be able to return to Crumpwood. It is very unfortunate that a number of recent work parties have been cancelled for various reasons but rest assured that we are keen for these to continue and of course this is the time of year when we are usually able to make very good progress.

Thank you all for your ongoing support and I hope to see some of you very soon.

Best regards
Steve
