Cutting Grass-Cutting Costs
As British Waterways (BW) has morphed into the Canal and Rivers Trust (CaRT) it is good to see that they have started to cut costs by employing cows and sheep to keep the grass down.
This trial is taking place on the Shropshire Union Canal between Audlem and Nantwich.
It is believed that beavers will be introduced shortly to manage the canalside trees.
UNITE - the trade union is embarking on a membership drive amongst the new workforce.
Does this mean the end of Strimmers splattteing boats with grass clippings?
