Bridgewater Canal Notice

Dear Boaters,

We want to bring to your attention that we have received reports of a recent increase in suspected criminal incidents and antisocial behaviour within the Castlefield area.

Whilst we do not wish to cause alarm, we would ask that you remain vigilant and report any concerns to the Company and also inform local police.

We are currently liaising with Manchester City Council who have advised that any issues are reported to the Police on 101. Manchester City Council have also advised they will be increasing patrols in the area.

This matter will also be raised with the Bridgewater Canal Watch Group.
