Working Parties and Open Meetings are still cancelled for the moment, but the pause is allowing us to update our health and safety procedures.

Bolton & Bury Arms Canal Restoration Feasibility Study
A draft of this study has been presented to Council, and the four partners (C&RT, Bolton & Bury Councils and the Society) have made various suggestions; the final version is expected soon and a summary will be published here.

Canal Restoration at the Breach
Watson Homes has submitted plans to Bolton Council. This includes repairing the breach and relining the dry length of canal. The planning committee is expected to discuss them in March.

The AGM which we hope might take place on 2nd February (together with the talk by Alan Stopher) have been cancelled due to continuing Covid restrictions and the unavailability of the theatre. We hope to have an AGM covering two years in October.
