We again will play our part in the 2019 International Festival of Fair Trade Walks with the theme ‘Milestones’; celebrating the Fair Trade Way and Lancaster Canal. This year sees the 10th anniversary for the original Garstang to Keswick Fair Trade Way and 25 years since the launch of the FAIRTRADE Mark in the UK. It is also the bicentenary for the Lancaster canal (otherwise known as the ‘black and white’ canal) that first ran from Preston to Kendal. We will walk alongside the canal from Galgate to Garstang to view the new milestones that are currently being replaced to celebrate the bicentenary – and its flat!!!! Details below. If you have any questions or would like to join us on the day and find out why it’s called the ‘black and white canal’ please contact Graham at:
