Thank you to all those who took part in the Heritage Walks led by Robert Swain. These were to celebrate the 200th Anniversary of the opening of the Lancaster Canal from Preston right through to Kendal, and were under the auspices of the Bolton-le-Sands Parish Council. Amazingly, none of the walks had to be cancelled owing to bad weather, although it was a close run thing one day as there was a thunderstorm not very long before the walk was due to start, but two stalwart ladies turned up for it, so it took place.
Robert was delighted at how many people came on the walks in total, far more than he had expected, and he considered them a great success. The collections at the end of each walk raised a grand total of £199.86 for Lancaster Canal Trust. In addition, there was a generous donation for Canal & River Trust for their work on the Lancaster Canal.
The assorted dogs that came on the walks seemed to enjoy them as well!
