  1. There was one in the Nelson lock at Braunston yesterday. We just managed to get up the lock before it started.
  2. Ratcliffe was also rebuilt at the same time as Kegworth.
  3. Alan Good to see you back. Hope that you are in good health. You have been missed. I spoke with Matt a couple of days ago. He and Kathy are fine
  4. Its all change at the top of the IWA with the resignation of the CEO and National Chair - I have met Paul Rodgers and he seemed to have good ideas. So what caused him to resign? Anyone know? Below is the email i received earlier today. Following the recent departure of Phil Hornsey as CEO and the resignation of Paul Rodgers as Trustee and National Chair, Trustees met on 2nd May 2022 to agree an interim leadership team. Trustees are pleased to announce that Les Etheridge has been co-opted as a Trustee and appointed as National Chair on an interim basis. Members will be asked to confirm Les’s appointment as a Trustee at the AGM in September 2022. Further, Trustees have agreed the appointment of Jonathan Smith as CEO, again on an interim basis. A full recruitment process will be undertaken for a permanent successor. Both Les and Jonathan have had long involvement with IWA and also bring extensive experience from the private sector. Trustees are looking forward to working with the new leadership team, staff and volunteers to make sure IWA continues to deliver while putting in place a plan for a strong and sustainable future. Sue O'Hare & Nick Dybeck IWA Deputy Chairs John Butler IWA National Treasurer on behalf of the Trustees: Sir Robert Atkins, John Butler, Dave Chapman, Nick Dybeck, Rebecca Hughes, Sue O’Hare, Hannah Sterritt
  5. I would like to own one of the Willow Wren woodentops preferably one of the Middlwich based ones and restore to original condition complete with bull bars. So far none has come up for sale. I'm also dubious about what condition the steel of the hull will be in. Larch, Pine or Ash would be my ideal boat. Early hire boats are a neglected type andsoon will only exist in photos.
  6. £1.15 at Shobnall at Burton on Wednesday
  7. £1.15 at Shobnall Burton on Trent on Tuesday.
  8. To return this thread to topic here is a large house for sale on the Soar at Barrow on Soar. It has good moorings and uninteruppted views across the river. Only £1.1m. https://www.onthemarket.com/details/11633083/
  9. Andy Middleton at Sileby Mill Boatyard on the Soar is very good.
  10. Now repaired and open again
  11. I suggest that you contact Sileby Mill Boatyard. Their mechanic - David Sawbridge - is very good. They also have fuel polishing equipment on site.
