The talk is free to attend but a donation to help cover the cost of the rent of the room and speaker’s expenses will be appreciated.

The talk will be followed by a brief Annual General Meeting of the Branch during which members of the branch can participate and visitors are welcome to stay if they wish to learn more about the Branch activities. The AGM will include brief reports and will confirm the membership of the Branch Committee. We are keen to get members involved in the Committee.

We aren’t asking anything arduous or time consuming and you will be able to find out more about the canals that we all love.
