Canal Boat - - News -

The fu­ture of London’s and pop­u­lar an­nual An­gel Canal Fes­ti­val is in doubt, af­ter or­gan­iser Beryl Windsor an­nounced she is step­ping down. The 78-year-old, who has led the event since 1999, has suf­fered health prob­lems, and her col­league Sasha Mears has al­ready re­tired af­ter heart surgery. She said that the event brings the peo­ple of Is­ling­ton to­gether “from the Boris John­son end with posh houses to those in shel­tered ac­com­mo­da­tion at the other end”, and its demise would be “a huge loss”, but if no­body vol­un­teers to take on the lead role, this year’s could be the last.
