Michael Fabricant joined the Lichfield & Hatherton Canals Restoration Trust on their stand at Cars in the Park in Lichfield on Saturday 7th July and shared a mug of bubbly to celebrate the Trust’s 30th year.
“I refused to toast the next 30 years” says Michael “as I hope the canals will be restored long before then.
“I did work out that, in theory, just one day’s worth of payment to the EU would be enough money to complete the Lichfield canal. That would be a great Brexit dividend though I doubt if I’ll be able to persuade the Chancellor. Philip Hammond, to give it to us!”
Michael is a Patron of the Trust.
