John's not an imaginary entity

Over to John tonight - I've had a busy day at work and have other things to do this evening. He's keen to get in the top 100 boating sites: it doesn't matter to me. So if you want to keep him happy, please let as many other people as possible know about the blog on our website!....

The enthusiasm of the people who faithfully "stuff" The Butty into "envelopes" for each edition is so obvious, they all deserve recognition in the Queen's Honours List. However, there were a few too many on holiday, so a mayday went out to local Boat Club Members - we are members of the Devizes and Pewsey Wharf clubs - to help the Kennet & Avon Canal Trust with this edition's mailing. John volunteered to help (no pressure); so a morning spent inserting The Butty and an address sheet into polythene envelopes, then bagging them up by postcode area with a pre-printed Royal Mail address sheet attached to the sack's plastic tie, was well rewarded by a wonderful lunch.

So if you are a member of the K&A Canal Trust you might find his DNA on it in the next few days :-) And if you aren't a member, but have any interest in keeping this wonderful stretch of waterway open, why not join? The Butty is by any standard a professionally produced magazine, with lots to read (40 pages - all free to members) and boating-relevant advertisements. You also get FREE entry to Crofton and Claverton Pumping Stations and the Canal Museum at Devizes wharf, whenever they are open. And the Trust is actively working to improve the canal's cruising, visitor and natural assets. Superb value!!!!
