Grantham Canal Society marks their 50th anniversary with cake
The Grantham Canal Society celebrated their 50th anniversary at the weekend. Despite the wet weather, there was a large turnout at the depot which is located at the rear of Dirty Duck pub in Woolsthorpe by Belvoir, including chairman of South Kesteven District Council (SKDC) Jacky Smith and Kelham Cooke, deputy leader of SKDC.
Visitors were able to see first-hand all the work that the society has been doing to try and restore the canal before taking a trip on the society’s narrowboat ‘Three Shires’.
They then joined volunteers in the depot for tea, coffee and cake as well as a barbecue.
Grantham Canal chairman, Mike Stone cut a ceremonial cake on Sunday assisted by Marylin Campbell, representing Grantham Civic Society.
The two-day event raised more than £1,100 for the society.
