Her­itage He­roes’ canals re­vealed

Canal Boat - - News -

FOL­LOW­ING THE AN­NOUNCE­MENT of Her­itage He­roes, a link-up be­tween the Canal & River Trust and Help for He­roes ( CB, April), three canals to be sup­ported by the ini­tia­tive have been named.

The £ 500,000 scheme, sup­ported by the Peo­ple’s Post­code Lot­tery, will help in­jured ser­vice­men and women to re­build their lives by work­ing on canal restora­tion pro­jects.

CRT told CanalBoat that there would be pro­jects on two canals un­der restora­tion – the Pock­ling­ton Canal (pic­tured) and the Wilts & Berks Canal (the lat­ter be­ing a non-CRT wa­ter­way), plus one nav­i­ga­ble canal, the Ken­net & Avon. Her­itage He­roes is to be of­fi­cially launched later this spring.
