Launch of ‘The Spirit of Royal Sutton Coldfield’

Andrew Mitchell was in Minworth today on the canal at the rear of the Boat where he launched “The Spirit of Royal Sutton Coldfield” which is the brain child of David Train, former Olympic Coach and President of the Fladbury Paddle Club.

Andrew said:

“His boat stands for our hopes in combatting climate change and promoting the biosphere.

“It flies the flag of Samoa which next year will host the Commonwealth heads of government meeting and where climate environment and nature will be incredibly prominent in their discussions.

“As the crew paddled off down the canal we cheered their resolve and public spiritedness.”
