I am making another appeal for volunteers to join our Bude Canal and Harbour Society and become Trustees, particularly persons who have the relevant computer skills. With the exception of our secretary, we are all over 75 years of age and we really do need some younger ones.
As a Trustee, our job is to administer to the society and to continue to lobby and encourage the Cornwall Council to conserve the Canal by establishing a proper Management Plan for it to include the harbour and the sea lock. If you are or know someone who is interested in becoming a Trustee, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or any of the Trustees you know.
The job is not an arduous one. We have a meeting once a month at the Falcon Hotel and need help setting up and manning a stall at Bude summer events when needed.
The Bude Canal is a great asset to the local community as well to our holiday trade. You could say it is our bread and butter! It is therefore up to us and the community to make sure it continues to be looked after and maintained, now and into the future.
