We love and care for your canals and rivers, because everyone deserves a place to escape.

Water safety summer roadshows

For cool ways to cool down this summer - without actually ending up in our canals - check out some of our great ideas. And visit one of our fun summer roadshows with ice-creams and ideas a-plenty.

Deckchairs by the canal Deckchairs by the canal

From 21 July to 31 July, our North West Waterways teams will be taking the canals on tour to tell people about how to enjoy our canals and stay safe at the same time. Come along for a free ice-cream, relax on a deckchair, padde in our very own canal paddling pool and generally get the opportunity to chill out!

We'll be talking to people about why it's important to stay safe near the water with plenty of information, hints and tips for you to take away.

Check out the events list below to find the roadshow nearest you - and if you're very lucky you may get the chance to chill out on the water with our friends from the Desmond Family Canoe Trail.
