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.


As the summer gets going we are looking for volunteers to help us keep the vegetation in check and generally keep the environment tidy and paths clear.

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 below for more information.
