Shropshire Union Middlewich Branch Adopters

On Saturday April 8th, in glorious sunshine, nineteen of SUMBA's volunteers visited Cholmondeston Lock and Barbridge Junction.

They completed the annual repainting of the lock's balance beams & infrastructure, nearby mooring bollards, totem posts, picnic tables & BBQs and at the junction two benches and two fences. Once again everything looks very smart.

Since April 2014 the team have completed 123 work parties, involving 1,262 volunteer days and 6,400 hours, to ensure that the Middlewich Branch Canal is a destination that is much admired by its numerous users and visitors.
