Sad News

This morning we have recieved some sad news that one of our regular customer, Tom of NB Best Mate has sadly passed away. We believe he was found on his boat and had suffered a heart attack (this information from Shep on NB Vital Spark who attended the memorial service yesterday).

Tom was a regular visitor to the Macc and Peak Forest Canals and a member of NCCC. He was a character and always had a bit of news or gossip for the towpath telegraph, and he enjoyed following horse racing. He will be missed by many of his follow boaters and friends. Rest in Peace Tom.
