CONGRATULATIONS... to the 24 caneoists (plus a dog!!) who joined our annual Canoe Cavalcade on Saturday 10th September, when we launched at Green Lane and paddled down the beautiful but neglected and overgrown Bray Cut. It was great to have Councilor David Evans, new RBWM Lead Member for Regeneration, join a canoe to see for himself the hidden channels that will link the town centre 'Ring' to the Thames once completed.
Maidenhead Waterways Restoration Group (Maidenhead Waterways or MW) is a charity set up by the people of Maidenhead for the town of Maidenhead, to restore and enlarge the old waterways that run through Maidenhead town centre. The project is one of the key elements of the Royal Borough's adopted Area Action Plan to rejuvenate and grow Maidenhead town centre.
Following RBWM's confirmation of the next £3m of funding, Stage 2 of the build has been instructed and will follow on directly from Stage 1. The Green Lane weir will be contracted and built around the end of 2017, to lift water levels in the York Stream throughout the town centre.
