What a great way to go to work! 2009/10
Evesham, where we live and moore our boat, is between 3 and 4 hours from Pershore, where WDC offices are, along the River Avon. During my year as Chairman Wendy and I intend to travel to work this way as often as possible. These pictures will show the glory of a lovely sunny day along the River Avon.
Leaving Evesham under Workman Bridge.
The views across the countryside in beautiful weather are quite stunning

Wyre Piddle diamond shaped lock. The only one of it’s type in the country. Why is it that shape?

WDC offices are in the background. Walking from boat to office is about 10 minutes.
Approaching Pershore moorings.
A nice way to do business. Meeting for a BBQ with Mayor of Pershore, Cllr Chris Parsons and Consort Jan
Pershore moorings on the King George Playing fields in the town centre. Facilities for boaters are excellent, with good shops for provisions.
