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.
