Message from Middlewich Town Council regarding canal incident

Middlewich Town Council is working closely with the Canal and River Trust to ensure that the Trust’s expertise and the Council’s local knowledge and contacts combine to find solutions and a way forward following the breach on the Middlewich Branch of the Shropshire Union.
Already in our minds are the preparations for the Middlewich FAB Festival 15th to 17th June 2018. We want to make it clear that the issues on the canal will not put this year’s event in jeopardy.
The Show will go on!
Obviously, access to Middlewich will be an issue for some of our boating visitors, but we hope to have some helpful information to issue to boaters and indeed all stakeholders early next week.
Thank you to everyone for your perseverance and patience. Thank you to the residents who have offered to help in so many ways and special thanks to the Canal and River Trust team for their positive and professional response to this major incident.

Boaters

Plans for our 28th festival are going well and we hope you can join us – you will be most welcome. Following last year’s success we will repeat the informal/free moorings for visiting boaters.

Visiting boats can moor in three locations: On the Trent & Mersey canal – below Big Lock or above Kings Lock, On the Shropshire Union – above Wardle Lock.

Moorings will again be reserved for the floating market, between Town Bridge and the Big Lock.

Middlewich Town Council is determined to keep the festival `free to all`wherever possible, despite increasing costs and reduced funding.

BOATERS are a BIG part of our FAB festival and we will do all we can to accommodate you and make you welcome.

FAB Festival Floating Market- reserved moorings are between Town Bridge & Big Lock.

Boaters who would like to attend 2018 please contact:
