THE WEY TO RAISE MONEY
Over 150 walkers raised around £10,000 towards the restoration of the Wey & Arun Canal on the Wey & Arun Canal Trust’s annual Poddle sponsored walk. “The proceeds are a fantastic result for our restoration fund,” said walk organiser Margaret Darvill. The trust has started a ‘final push’ appeal for £120,000 to finish the Compasses Bridge project, a new bridge replacing a 1930s concrete causeway at one of the entrances to the Dunsfold Park aerodrome and business complex. Members of the public are invited to watch Dame Penelope Keith officially open the bridge on Sunday 2 October.
