Baton changeover Tiverton 23rd May 2016

We met the Somerset section at the Tiverton basin of the Grand Western canal for the baton changeover today 23rd, the weather was fine but cloudy and we arrived on site in good time as the Somerset section had come across road closed ahead signs on the way and one of their number had broken down. Rodney Hann was on hand to see the baton pass into our hands and set off whilst they had a well earned snack and cuppa at the adjoining tea gardens.Tomorrow will see us take the baton to our Cornish cousins at Red post so watch this space.
