* 3-Nov-2014 The latest Friends of Kennet Newsletter should now have arrived in your inbox - and is online here.
* 22-Aug-2014 The 3rd Kennet update of the season is now online. As you will see the main change is that the CRT Partnership has changed the format of the day and it is now only an “internal event” so Kennet is stopping in the west to the end of the season. There are also other alterations along with additions. Please have a look and volunteer to help with staffing and moving so that we can have a successful end to the season. We are particularly short of help for the 31st August in Runcorn, the Crooke Beer, Boat and Folk Festival (20-21 September) and the PR day (9 October).
* 15-Jul-2014 We are now well into the season, which so far has been very successful with over 3,000 visitors to date including five schools. An updated Kennet Movements & Programme is now online. As you see it has seen some changes / additions which although adds to the volunteering input we feel that if we can achieve it the the whole season will be a huge success. However it does rely on us having the volunteers to help - so please let the appropriate contact know as indicated on the programme. Many thanks to all those who have helped to date and we look forward to seeing as many of you as possible over the remainder of the season.
* 5-Jun-2014 We plan to open to the public on Sunday 22nd June for the Burscough Heritage Weekend. PLEASE HELP so that we can open up at the place where Kennet was "relaunched" in a blaze of glory 2 years ago. You simply need to help the public onto and in Kennet with the added enjoyment of chatting to interested people.
* 7-Apr-2014 Hello All - we are looking at holding an "Open Day" to invite Organisations, Boat Clubs and other possible interested parties to promote Kennet and the Society. If we have enough volunteers come forwards then it will take place on Saturday 31st May at ELWY Boat Club (they have kiindly offered to move some boats for us so that we have easy access). So it is over to you - please let us know your thoughts and whether you would be available. Apart from this we must not forget our other events initial events of Skipton Waterways Festival at Skipton and Hyndburn. We will be just beyond the Bridge on the Springs Branch and would like to also utilise the grass area on the bank to add to our impact - so the more of us there is the more impact we can make. Please let us know (if you haven't already done so) when you can join us on any event (especially the ones above) so we can finalise our plans. Many thanks to those who have already volunteered. Latest version of the events list.
* We are near the start of our 2014 season with Kennet - and the latest Newsletter which has the season’s programme to date is now online. This is very dependent on our volunteer support and we still require more help. If you would like to give an hour or so (or even longer) at any of the events or moving Kennet then please let us know as soon as possible so that you can be put into touch with those who are "heading up" each event. Looking forward to seeing you over the season.

* The web site has been moved to the Society’s new domain. This is hosted by the same ISP and there should be no change in content or appearance as a result of the move. However new authors and editors can now be accommodated.
* This web site has been converted from a HTML, text edited, file structure into a Netobjects Fusion project at the request of the Committee. External web sites linking to specific pages (other than the Home page) will need updating. Please report any errors to Brian Townsley. The aim of the conversion is to allow new authors and editors to be involved. Any members interested?
