We also welcomed our newest volunteer Barry, who pitched in and helped in all aspects of the canoe work, either on foot, in water or by bicycle.

Matt Blue, our canoe expert consultant, came along to see how we had progressed since last March. He seemed very happy with what he saw.

Adam was with us for the last time this summer as he starts his teacher training course in Bath this week. Many thanks, Adam and good luck with your studies.
