Due to the current situation with Coronavirus, we are not running this Taskforce. We will endeavour to update you as soon as we can, please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

This is one of a series of Task Days which take place on the Leeds & Liverpool Canal in Wigan, meeting at a different location each week. Tasks can include vegetation works, litter picking and general towpath maintenance. When: Every Tuesday at 10am.

Please wear suitable outdoor clothing which you don’t mind getting dirty and sturdy shoes. We’ll provide all the tools and equipment needed to do the task. We do provide hot drinks but you may also want to bring your own flask or water bottle and a packed lunch or snack depending on how long you’re staying.


It's a great way to meet other like minded volunteers and get to hear about other volunteering opportunities if you fancy getting more involved.

Skills required

No special skills are needed for the day and everyone works at their own pace. If you've got specific skills that you think may be helpful, please let us know.
