MP gets to know the canal

Angela Rayner, MP for the Ashton under Lyne constituency, in which most of the canal's course is situated, joined members of the canal society today for a walk around the canal features in Daisy Nook Country Park.

Angela was elected as MP for Ashton in 2015, following the retirement of David Heyes, who is very supportive of canals. The visit has been planned for some time but had to fit in with Angela's busy schedule as Shadow Pensions Minister.
