A message from Martin Holliss, Chair of the Trustees, Wilts & Berks Canal Trust

It is my great pleasure to announce that Her Majesty Queen Camilla has decided to retain the Patronage of the Wilts & Berks Canal Trust.

The announcement of this decision was timed to mark the first anniversary of their Majesties’ Coronation on 6 May 2023, and follows a thorough review of more than 1000 charities with whom Her Majesty has been associated. We are honoured and deeply grateful that Her Majesty has chosen to continue supporting us as our Patron.

Three Cheers for Her Majesty!!!

As an aside, I have no doubt that Buckingham Palace’s thorough review will have picked up on the exceptional work being done right along our canal line, especially in restoration and increasing biodiversity, and the increasingly wide range of topics being covered actively in our publicity and communications. Many congratulations and thank you to everybody involved in this.
