Between Monday June 12th & Friday 16th, working in partnership with SUMBA and Canal & River Trust, eight third year students from Reaseheath College's Construction Department have completely restored a very dilapidated canal side building near Venetian Marina on the Middlewich Branch Canal.

Planning for the project commenced last October and the students concluded their 3rd year NVQ Level 3 final exams by working on site for a total of 266 hours during last week.
