There will be plenty of messing about on the water in the Thames Valley over the next few days. Thousands of people are expected at Reading's Water Festival tomorrow before the show moves upstream to Newbury the following weekend.
The festivals are a celebration of our waterway towns. And this year the charity that saved the Kennet and Avon canal from closure, has particular cause to celebrate. Penny Silvester reports
