On 14 Mar 19 I asked the Trust:
Have you awarded a contract to maintain the canal and if so when can we expect to see an improvement? The canal barge is also covered in bird excrement. The reason, if you do not already know, is because the stainless steel ‘bird prevention’ wires which stretched from bow to stern along the top of the barge are missing. I assume you will be arranging to have the barge cleaned? Can you confirm when you do that you will also have the missing wires replaced.
