But the trust has now had the paddle-boarders' event moved to the time of 1.30pm to 3.30pm—just two hours, leaving the tunnel available for the challenge out of these times on the 4th June, for which many boaters are taking part.

The trust thanks those who've pointed out this oversight and it would like to apologise for all concern caused.
