To quote Tom Cruise (sort of) - I feel the need, the need for a visit to a canal! <_<

Whats happening over the weekend? I lost track of what was on, what was cancelled, and what might not happen due to low water levels!

:cheers:

If my opinion was correct, true and valid. We would all share the same opinion. Then it wouldn't be an opinion.

Is the Historic Boat gathering a private event? I hadn't realised there was one, I thought about going but seem to be struggling to find any details, except that it is at Droitwich?

Unless I am looking in all the wrong places !!

IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO CC ON ONE CANAL.

It's a gathering of like minded boat owners. It is not a 'public' event in as there will be no stalls, beer tent, entertainments etc but you will get to see many lovingly restored historic boats.

Many thanks, just what I wanted. I have never been to Droitwich but assume even I can't miss a large collection of boats together on a canal!
