WORKING PARTIES

We have several regular Working Parties

  • Lichfield Canal Engineering
  • Green Team
  • Grounds Team

Volunteers come and go as they wish,  even if it’s only for a couple of hours your help will be most welcome.  Most weeks our own volunteers supply 100 to 200 man-hours on ground works alone. Our own work parties are sometimes supplemented by visits from the Waterway Recovery Group (WRG) and other groups.

If you can help please Contact  volunteering.org.uk

You can also get involved via the  Waterway Recovery Group
