Today Canal volunteers planted fruit trees on the towpath verge opposite to the one cleared of weeds in last month’s noble voluntary exercise.
This time the objective was not to clear the overgrowth of wild plants but to insert small fruit trees at intervals along the 30 metre stretch.
Jollity was running high as I joined them for some photos. Their spirited, energetic efforts soon created the desired results.
For all their efforts, the volunteers were thanked by regional CRT man Nick Cleaver.
As a reward they then wended their weary way to quench their thirst at a nearby hostelry at the invitation of Nick.
Below is a gallery of photos I took of the event.
