First published in Local

IT was lights, camera, action at Droitwich Spa Marina as it enjoyed the limelight for its renovation work.

Nick Parkes, the marina's director, was interviewed throughout the morning by BBC One's Breakfast show reporter John Maguire about the renovation of the canals.

Also interviewed were Vince Moran, Canals and Rivers Trust and Vaughan Welch, Inland Waterways Association, and several moorers.

The Droitwich Canal received National Lottery funding which enabled the Mid Worcestershire Ring to be completed providing the only 21 mile circular cruising route in Europe.

It then provided the opportunity for the development of the 238-berth Droitwich Spa Marina which opened in March 2012.

Three years ago, Droitwich Spa Marina appeared on BBC One's Countryfile when the first sod was dug signalling the start of the major development.

The reports can be viewed by logging on to www.droitwichspamarina.co.uk.

Very slow - when it suits them there's been an acting head teacher struck off, from a primary school in Worcester , the details of which are published on a Gov't website and I would have thought could be front page, and yet strangely no mention in the evening News...
