The intriguing history of the famous Grand Union Canal – built to improve communications between Birmingham and the Midlands and London – is one of the highlights of the first Three Rivers Seniors’ Forum of the year.

Croxley councillor Chris Mitchell, a canal engineer with British Waterways for 24 years, will share the story of the canal and will be joined by a myriad of other guest speakers.

Cllr Keith Martin, the organiser, said: “It’s great to be back for the first event of 2023 with such an array of diverse speakers.

“Once again, I extend an open invitation to all Three Rivers residents of retirement age, to come along and enjoy an afternoon amongst friends which will be full of great entertainment and great talks from fascinating people.”

The forum – which was previously known as the Pensioners’ Forum – takes place between 2.30pm and 4.30pm at Rickmansworth School on February 24.

Access and parking will be available from 2.15pm- guests are advised not to come before this time.

Refreshments will be available and there will be free parking at the school.
