We are always looking for volunteers who are happy to come and get stuck in.  Activities vary from ongoing maintenance and trimming to working on our major projects such as relaying paths and building bridges. 

If you'd like to be updated with announcements on new volunteer opportunities and Work Parties as they happen, please fill out the form on our Contact page to join our e-mailing list.

We are currently looking for volunteer Rangers to help us monitor and care for the canal environment. The work will involve:​

•  "Litter picking" ​

•  Identifying and reporting maintenance issues

•  Providing information about the project to the public

•  Minor trimming of vegetation to keep the footpaths clear

Being a Ranger is a great way to stay fit and enjoy the countryside. There are no fixed hours - do what you can when you can. We will give you plenty of support and provide all the equipment and training you need. If you are interested in becoming a Ranger, please email us.


We're amassing quite a band of regular helpers - please do consider coming to join us. All you need is a willingness to get stuck in!

Below is a link to our latest dates on Facebook, or you can contact us through our Contact page for more information.
