Chair Chat: The Trust has won the annual Christopher Power prize, jointly with Droitwich Canal trust. This is for the most significant contribution to an amenity waterway. The W&B Group have supported the Cotswolds Canal in opposing extraction of gravel north of Cricklade, which threatened their canal. At Kingshill a couple of short restored lengths and a couple of obstructed lengths have now been joined to form one long run of canal.
