Volunteering at Saul Junction Painting is just one of the many tasks

We spent a lot of time volunteering hoping to get a Green Flag Award for the Saul Junction section of the G & S canal but we did manage to take Henry to Blackland Lakes near Calne to help out our chums on the Towpath Task force at Caen Hill and also catch up with friends in Devizes. We cruised down to Sharpness one of our favourite spots to moor – amazing views out across the River Severn.
