Presentation for long service at Canal AGM

Jill White with Chris Jewell

Thanks to Mike Moore for this report:

The Bude Canal and Harbour Society AGM was held at The Castle Heritage Centre, Bude recently.
The chairman of the Society, Chris Jewell, presented Jill White with a framed photograph of the canal and sea lock at Bude taken on 27th August 2016, during the arrival of the lifeboat for the RNLI Weekend. This was presented in recognition the contribution she has made to the society while serving as a trustee. She has now resigned due to an impending move out of the area.
The AGM was preceded by an interesting talk by Graham Wills about the little-known Pinkery Pond and the surrounding waterways which are on Exmoor above Simonsbath. The talk was followed by an excellent buffet lunch provided by the staff at Cafe Limelight.
Just a reminder that the exhibition about the Bude Canal Regeneration Project continues at The Castle Heritage Centre from 10am to 4pm daily until Thursday 2nd March.
