Due to the current situation with Coronavirus, this is on hold at the moment. If you sign up, we’ll endeavour to update you as soon as we can. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

Recently we have repainted Newbury Lock, cut back overhanging vegetation, carried out litter removal and made repairs to the towpath on the Kennet & Avon Canal.

We meet on the 2nd Thursday of each month, 10am until approx. 3pm in Newbury . Exact location details will be sent out each month to volunteers who have registered.


It's a great way to meet other local volunteers and the Trust's Volunteer team, learn new practical skills, hear about other volunteer opportunities or just spend a few hours outdoors improving your local waterway environment.

Skills required

There are no skills required for this task and all safety procedures and work instructions will be given on the day; you just need to be willing to get stuck in and get dirty. We advise that you wear old clothes and protective footwear if you have some.
