Dragonfly Fundraiser


On Sunday April 29th, Canal and Countryside Volunteer Kevin Russell (Number 19) is running the Newport Marathon in support of the Fourteen Locks Canal Centre run by MBACT, raising funds to get the dragonfly statue back to it's former glory after being vandalised in 2012. Donations can be made to support Kevin HERE

The dragonfly is cast in bronze and made up of waterway features which evoke the canal’s industrial and transport heritage. The sculpture was commissioned by Newport Borough council and are the works of artist Joanne Risley and Barry Callagham.
