Canal society takes 'village' for a cruise

Published: Wednesday, 09 August 2017

MEMBERS of the Alvechurch Village Society have always shown interest in the Worcester & Birmingham Canal, so they were treated to a cruise on the waterway.

It was the Worcester Birmingham & Droitwich Canal Society that took the members on an exploration of the waterway on Saturday, Alan Tilbury reports.

Three trips

It required three trips to accommodate all the members on the canal society's narrowboat Cecilia, that took all afternoon and evening, with poor weather with thunderstorms and lightening causing a delayed start.

After sheltering under a canal bridge whilst the worst of the storm abated, the weather cleared to allow all the trips to take place.
