What's involved?

Join us for our Towpath Taskforce on the third Wednesday of each month. It’s a great opportunity to try low-commitment volunteering with the Trust. Typically we tackle litter, remove vegetation, paint locks and mend towpaths. All tools and equipment will be provided. We meet at 10am - 2pm at various locations in Rochdale by the canal.

What skills are we looking for?

No experience is required, just bring yourself and a positive attitude. Please dress for the weather and bring sturdy footwear.

What will you get from us?

The Rochdale Towpath Taskforce offers a great way to meet like-minded people from the local community and our Manchester volunteering team. You can help make a difference in maintaining and enhancing the Rochdale Canal as well as benefiting your own physical and mental wellbeing. You can learn new skills, hear about other volunteer opportunities or just spend a few hours enjoying the great outdoors.
