Does the Kennet & Avon Canal Trust have a future?

The K&A Canal Trust has suffered heavy financial losses in recent years and since the latter part of 2010 has struggled to pay the wages of its remaining staff. It recently decided to vacate its wharfside HQ in Devizes because it can no longer afford to stay there.

The leaders of the Trust have asked members to help decide its future and they are holding meetings along the K&A Canal to explain to members the full extent of the Trust's crisis and to discuss with them their ideas for its future.

Tonight's meeting (Thursday 12 may 2011) is at 6pm at the Stone Building on Newbury Wharf.

  1. I would be sad to see the demise of the Kennet and Avon Canal Trust - I was a member for many years. If it goes to the wall the blame will lie with the present management team - particularly those that wouldn't reply to emails when they wanted to kill off The Butty.
