Littleborough Adoption Group work with the Trust to look after the canal through Littleborough. They run work parties every Thursday, supported by the Trust which include towpath improvements, cutting back overgrowth and more. The Group is a community group set up to help care for their section of canal. Tasks may vary according to need. All tools and equipment will be provided, together with expert and friendly support and refreshments.

They meet every Thursday at 10am and are working on flood clear up from through February and March. This volunteering opportunity is run by an organisation who works in partnership with the Trust. We cannot pass on your details to them.

The Group offers a great way for the local people to have their say about looking after the canal and really make it happen. It’s also a great way to just spend a few hours outdoors improving the local canal.
