Work Party 31.5 (5)

TUESDAY  30TH AUGUST: Work party meets between 8.00 and 9.00am at Brownsters Cafe, High Street, Clydach.  Work commences at Trebanos Lower Lock at 9.30 to dredge the canal below the lock in preparation for the Swansea Science Week event on Tuesday 6th September when Canoes will travel from Coed Gwilym Park to see how the lock used to work. The vistors will  view close-up the Trebanos Lower Lock chamber from the canoes.  They will have the chance to see a fully working model of the lock before they depart from Coed Gwilym Park and also be able to follow the timeline of the canal’s history in the Clydach Heritage Centre. More details of this event in next week’s  ‘The Week Ahead’ (also see under the  ‘Events’ heading for September 6th on the website).
