We love and care for your canals and rivers, because everyone deserves a place to escape.

Mexborough Partnership Canal Clean-up


Reference: OPP0002624

Activities: Practical

Starts: 22nd November 2014

Mexborough,SSYN, South Yorkshire

Canal & River Trust are teaming up with Mexborough First to clean up the towpath through Mexborough, and we need your support! This is a lovely stretch of canal, teaming with wildlife, but unfortunately teaming with litter as well. With the support of Mexborough First and the local community we'd like to transform the waterways through the town to make them a safe and enjoyable place to visit. The towpath is already well used and is an asset to the community of Mexborough, so please join us and help us to keep it that way. We will be meeting at 10am on Saturday 28th February for our second volunteer event.


This is a great way to socialise, meet new people, and to meet others with Mexborough's best interest at heart.

Skills required

No previous experience is necessary just a willingness to get stuck in. We do advise you wear outdoor clothing and sturdy footwear - ideally work boots or walking boots - as the ground is likely to be wet and muddy.
