Lichfield and Hatherton Canals Restoration Trust has announced the appointment of two new directors.


Luke Walker, who joins the board as the Inland Waterway Association’s nominee trustee, worked for many years with the Wilts & Berks Canal Trust, starting as an occasional volunteer bricklayer and rising to the roles of projects director and vice-chairman.


Luke, who has also served within the IWA as vice-chairman of the Restoration Committee, moved to the Brownhills area in 2013.


The second new director is Stefan Szulc, who has been a Trust member and volunteer for many years after his retirement from a career as a civil engineer and computer programmer.


Stefan is editor of the Trust’s quarterly magazine ‘Cut Both Ways’.

LHCRT chairman David Dixon said: “We warmly welcome the two appointments, which will strengthen the Trust’s board.


“Stefan has long supported our activities in various ways, including producing the Trust magazine four times a year.  Luke brings to us his wide experience of canal restoration in other parts of the country.”
