We've all seen the guys who come along the canal with a small boat measuring how deep the silt & mud at the bottom of the canal. Well - it seems that there is about half a metre of sludge & goodness knows what else! - So British Waterways are going to dredge the canal for us. Thank you to Charlie Foreman from Hackney Council gave us the heads-up on this:
Local residents, boaters, businesses and clubs have all been made aware of the programme via letter and meetings.
Please find attached a copy of the letter sent to local residents. If you require any further information please do let me know.
