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

Plastic Patrol in Walsall

We're hosting a series of free paddle boarding events across England’s canals this summer to get people out enjoying the water and to highlight the problem of plastic pollution.

Event details

5th August 2017

10:00am - 3:00pm

Walsall Canal


Navigation Street


Join us at this free event and help keep Walsall's canal looking beautiful.

The programme is being led by adventurer Lizzie Carr, who recently paddle boarded across the English Channel and who, last year, was the first person to paddle board the length of England’s inland waterways, to highlight the problem of plastic pollution.

Anyone can turn up and take part in the clean-up events.  However to get afloat and take part in the paddle boarding, participants must be 16 years or older.

Visit plasticpatrol.co.uk for further details of the events, including how to register.
