....mostly about boating on NB Jubilee
I think Richard Parry sees plenty of the canals as they really are, and probably sees far more of them than any of his predecessors did. I'd be very surprised if a lock were being tarted up just for him (unless the local CRT people were thoroughly ashamed of the state it had got into) ... no bad thing to smarten up for a public event though is it?
Sarah, you are absolutely right. I was picking up the bad vibe from the person who told me it was for Richard Parry's benefit and wrote without enough consideration. I suppose I was comparing cosmetics with deeper lock maintenance, but they could both be seen as important. I have a lot of time for RP; he manages to get to waterways events all over the country where he has time to talk and answer questions.
