The Canal & River Trust Summer Roadshow 2018 is touring different locations all over the North West.

Here at Rochdale we'll be showing why #lifesbetterbywater by:

  • sharing our top tips for staying safe by the water this summer
  • promoting the towpath code
  • going virtual with our VR experience - our destinations brought to life in front of your eyes
  • giving out free family activity sheets (colouring and scavenger hunt sheets)
  • running various free family Let's Fish and canoe seesions (certain locations only) 

Our North West team will also be on hand to answer any questions you have about your local canal.
