Would you enjoy learning new skills, meeting new people, keeping fit and generally messing about on and by the canal?

Common Moor Towpath Taskforce is the volunteer group working on the canals around Croxley Green. We work on vital tasks such as planting hedgerows, tackling problem plants, painting locks, mending towpaths and generally making the waterside a more attractive place for everyone to enjoy. All tools and equipment will be provided, together with expert and friendly support and refreshments. No experience necessary, but do contact us if possible to let us know you‘d like to take part, we'd love to see you!
