Join the Friends of Slough Canal in their work to maintain and enhance the beautiful Slough Arm of the Grand Union canal. The group run monthly mini-clean ups on the first Sunday of each month at various locations along the Slough Arm. They also hold a big spring clean-up each year and other one off events such as wildflower planting.

In the coming months the group will be running a 'Clean for the Queen' clean up on Sunday 6 March 2016 and their annual Big Clean on Saturday 2 April 2016. Please use the 'sign up for this opportunity' button below to find out more.

Skills required

No skills or previous experience are required, all safety instructions and equipment will be provided by the group on the day, you just need to turn up with enthusiasm. It's best to wear old clothes which you don't mind getting grubby and closed in footwear with a sturdy sole.
