Had a great time at the Waterways featival in Newbury at the weekend. I was facepainting for the Kennet and Avon Canal Trust and made just under fifty quid. Nice amount and a great day out. It's amazing how much work the trust puts into the canal without any real recognition from those that make use of it. I hope that changes proposed by the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats to central government bodies does not cut off their funding. If it does, it will leave the trust (and most other small charities) fighting for the few pennies that everyone has left.
Oh and who is this handsom if slightly balding fellow Newbury Weekly News caputred?
