This from our Secretary:
We have recently attended the above three events with our boats and the following is the income as a result of our efforts.
Linslade Canal Festival. We have taken £315.39 with £267.35 for sales and £48.04 for donations.
The weather was very wet indeed on the Friday and Neil and I got soaked right through to our skins. We left Stoke Bruerne at 08.45am and it was drizzling and it continued on all day with heavier rain intermittent with the drizzle. It was still raining when we finally moored up at 20.40pm at Linslade.
Blisworth Canal Festival. We took a total of £356.63 with £257.60 for sales and £74.03 for donations. We also signed up one new single member and one Family membership.
Hillmorton 175th Anniversary of the Locks. We have taken £198.50 with £168.30 for sales and £10.20 for donations. We also signed up two new single members. In addition we were given a donation of £50 for each of our boats for attending and supporting this event.
Our efforts in attending these events has improved our profile out there and has also been well worth it.
