Wiltshire group DEVELOPs a real interest in canal

Staff from DEVELOP, which supports voluntary and community groups in Wiltshire, learnt more about the work of one group when they visited the Wilts & Berks Canal for a sunshine cruise.

Skipper Mike Lang even let staff have a go at steering the Dragonfly.

The Trust aims to develop and restore the canal, which has been derelict for many years, and eventually re-connect the North Wilts Canal and the Kennet and Avon Canal near Melksham.

Dragonfly offers trips on the only currently navigable section, from Old Town in Swindon.
