TUESDAY 23RD JANUARY: OFFICIAL OPENING OF THE NEW TOWPATH THROUGH THE OLD HIGHWAYS DEPOT, CLYDACH.

The ribbon will be cut by Cllr. Robert Stewart, Leader of the Swansea cabinet and two young people from Whitethorns Day Care Centre, Morriston at 11.00am. We will be joined by representatives of the Canal and River Trust, Sustrans, and the City and County of Swansea  who have greatly assisted us in the building of the path. The 120 metre path will be part of Sustrans National Route 43 (Swansea to Builth Wells) and is the first step in transforming this part of the depot site into a canal, wildlife and boat-based leisure park. There will be an exhibition of what has been done and what is to come in future, in the marquee on the site. Walkers, cyclists, dogs  and passers-by will take a first trip along the path once the ribbon is cut and a buffet lunch will follow.  Make a date in your diary this Tuesday and come and join us.
