I think if CRT put as much effort into the canals as they do with some of their rinki-dink projects then maybe the canals will become what they should be rather than what they are.

Plant an orchard on land at Caen Hillside on the Kennet & Avon Canal
Give a vole a home along the Grand Union Canal
Give a vole a home along the Grand Union Canal's Leicester Line
Create a butterfly highway at Fenny Compton
Give a newt a home on the Grand Union Canal
Create a wildlife habitat in Coney Meadow on the Droitwich Canals
Give a vole a home along the Kennet & Avon Canal
Create a community art project in Birmingham's Heartlands Linear Park
Create a wildlife haven on the River Severn
Create an accessible viewing platform for the spectacular Iron Trunk Aqueduct

I get the impression that our native voles are too stupid to find their own homes.

Hi Maffi
Are you making these up?

Maffi said...

No its on their website. I dont need to make them up they do OK on thier own.

Hi Maffi

Yep, truth is often stranger than fiction.

I suspect suggesting newts are more intelligent than voles will have upset some lefty, pc, be nice to all our furry friends, voles have feelings too organisation.

WTF is a butterfly highway and how would the butterflies know they should use it? Butterfly traffic lights perhaps?

Call me a cynic, but a community art project sounds like authorised graffiti to me.
