Monthly Social Meeting – January – Strategy Discussions @ Royal Oak Inn, Much Marcle
Jan 21 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

We have ideas, we need your input as well as we work on the strategy together.

We are holding an open evening for you to come and give your input.
We of course are aiming to re-build the canal, but it can be done in many ways.
Which way do you think it should be done?
Do we expand Over first or build a canal by Malswick House or get the inclined plane built at Newent or develop
opportunities in Herefordshire.
How do we operate in the future?
Your chance to give your views
