The latest news and information about upcoming volunteer activities

Uttoxeter Canal - July work party

Only a very short note from me this month, to remind you that this month's work party is in a couple of days time. In a change from recent months, we are moving back to Crumpwood where we will be pulling Himalayan Balsam as well as cutting back vegetation regrowth at Bridge 70, Carrington's Lock and Crumpwood Weir. It would be great to have a really good turnout for this event, so please share the word to anyone you think might be interested.

Uttoxeter Canal - June update

Since our last newsletter our volunteers have been very busy. As well as the regular work party last month, we have recently run a work party for a group of young people on a Prince's Trust training scheme and last weekend - for the second time - we hosted a Waterway Recovery Group Family Camp at Crumpwood. This activity aims to involve children in a range of outdoor activities which they will find interesting and enjoyable, whilst delivering practical works to assist our project, and of course with a view to them becoming more involved in volunteering on the waterways as they get older.
