Wilts & Berks Canal Trust Search for a New Chairman

The Chairman of the Wilts & Berks Canal Trust, John Laverick, was taken ill suddenly in September. Although he is now on the road to recovery, he has decided to step down from his role.

Bringing the Wilts & Berks back to life is recognised to be the most ambitious canal restoration in the country. The Trust is now looking for a person with the foresight and commitment to take up this challenge and lead the Trust on to the next stage. They have numerous projects coming on stream at the moment including the Melksham Link, creation of a new stretch of canal that will join Melksham to the Kennet & Avon Canal and the 5 year Towpath Challenge, restoring 102km of towpath from Semington to Abingdon.
