Thank you to Bury College students!

This week we took the Bury College students (and a dog belonging to one of the volunteer crew) on a boat trip from Portland Basin to Staley Bridge, as a thank you for all of their hard work over the past academic year.

The students have been out with us every Thursday doing water quality testing and eco surveys. We look forward to welcoming a new group of students next autumn! You can find out more about volunteering with us on our volunteer pages.

Community Roots

Community Roots (North) is an exciting three-year conservation project supported by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and players of People’s Postcode Lottery. It’s based along the SSSI areas on the Huddersfield Narrow and Rochdale Canals in Greater Manchester, and aims to engage the local communities with these special environments. An additional strand of the project is based in Birmingham.

Julianne Joyce, Community Roots Project Officer is going to keep us updated on the project's progress.
