Coronavirus pandemic

As a result of the pandemic and the related restrictions put in place by the Government, the organisers of virtually all events have cancelled them. The events listed below may yet be cancelled and those interested in one or more should check the situation with the organisers.

Currently, details of further events are unavailable. However, if Covid restrictions are lifted on 19 July as the Government are currently indicating, many events could be announced by next month.

The committee of the Southampton Canal Society has agreed that all scheduled meetings of the Society will be cancelled until the meeting due on 7th October 2021. The Society’s secretary should be able to supply more up-to-date information.
