Victor Crawford gave a talk on “The Mary Sunley Canal Boat and Canals” at the regular club meeting on Thursday 23rd May. The “Mary Sunley” and its successor “Mary Sunley 2” operate on the Macclesfield Canal offering cruises to charities which cater for people who are disadvantaged through birth or disability. The name of the boat, recently purpose built to cater for able bodied passengers as well as wheelchairs , goes back to the Sunley family and the Bernard Sunley Charitable Foundation. It was set up by Bernard Sunley, who made his fortune in World War Two supplying earth moving equipment and later property development.

Mr Crawford described the history of the Macclesfield Canal as well as canals in general.

The speaker at the next meeting will be Nigel Linge and his subject “The Internet Thing”.
