An update from the Wey & Arun Canal Trust (WACT), which is restoring a waterway which once ran 23 miles from Shalford to Pallingham in West Sussex. The Trust has established the Hunt Nature Park, where the canal route meets the River Wey, as part of its aim to create a green corridor for wildlife and recreation.

The waterway isn’t an organisation just for boaters and waterway fans.

Its members are enthusiasts of many types. They range from walkers to wildlife photographers, but most have one thing in common – a love of the countryside.

And they all support the magnificent project of restoring the 19th-century canal from Shalford in Surrey to Pallingham in West Sussex.

To find out more about becoming a member and volunteering visit, e-mail, or call 01483 505566.

The trust can also arrange a speaker to give talks about WACT and its activities to organisations and community groups.

WACT’s volunteer speakers are increasing the number of talks being given.

Bookings are already being made for 2019.

Talks can be organised via the website (visit or by emailing
