Three key vacant posts at the Kennet & Avon Canal Trust: Chairman,  Director of Boats and Managing Director of Kennet & Avon Canal (Enterprise) Ltd, have now been filled.

Neil Lethby has agreed to take on the role of Chairman of the Kennet & Avon Canal Trust until the end of the year. The post has been vacant since the departure of David Rees who held the post for 9 months — and before that the Trust did not have a chairman while it spent two years looking for a suitable person.

Neil will continue as Company Secretary and Treasurer although he reminded the K&A Canal Trust Council recently that he wants to relinquish the post of Treasurer that he has held for 3 years. 

Kennet & Avon Canal Trust (Enterprise) Ltd  have a new Managing Director.  Alan Whitewick will take on this role. Alan is also the Honorary Editor of the Trust's member's magazine, The Butty, and he heads up a recent fundraising campaign aimed at raising at least a £1000 a month to help cut the Trust's financial deficit following the failure of 'Membership Plus', which was launched last year with the aim of raising £100,000 in 12 months through increased membership and fundraising.

David Inight, the Chairman of the Bradford on Avon (formerly West Wilts) Branch of the K&A Canal Trust has been co-opted to Trust Council and appointed Director of Boats. Alan Whitewick and David Inight join Neil Lethby, Mike Rodd and Tim Jones as the Board of K&A Canal Trust (Enterprise) Ltd
