WORKING PARTIES

We have several regular working parties  in both Canal Engineering and Green/Grounds environmental work.

Volunteers come and go as they wish,  even if it’s only for a couple of hours your help will be most welcome.  Our own work parties are sometimes supplemented by visits from the Waterway Recovery Group (WRG) and other corporate groups.

If you can help please contact  volunteering.org.uk

You can also get involved via the  Waterway Recovery Group
