Visitors raise over £1,500 towards restoration of Grantham Canal
Grantham Canal Society raised over £1,500 towards the restoration of the canal over the bank holiday weekend.
Visitors were able to have a look around the canal depot near the Dirty Duck, Woolsthorpe-by-Belvoir, alongside a photographic display of the canal through the ages.
There were also plenty of activities for children to get involved in including inspecting mini-beasts that had been dipped from the canal.
Youngsters could also build a bridge, make a brick, discover how boats float and why canals were built and a fun water safety activity.
There was also a tombola and second hand books for sale. Visitors were then able to hop on board the ‘Three Shires’ boat, which was purpose built for the canal society.
Anthony Jackson, events co-ordinator for the Grantham Canal Society, said: “We would like to thank everyone who visited. With the restoration of the canal moving on apace, support in community is particularly important.”
