Trent and Mersey Canal Towpath Taskforce


Reference: OPP0005183

Activities: Practical

Starts: 25th May 2017

Closing Date: 18 May 2018

Trent & Mersey Canal, Staffordshire

A brand new volunteer group working along the Trent and Mersey Canal between the Harecastle Tunnel and Great Haywood.
We will be doing tasks such as painting the lock and infrastructure, cutting back overgrown vegetation, litter picking, path resurfacing and fencing among other jobs. This is a great opportunity to get outdoors, learn some new skills and meet likeminded people who also want to give some time to improve the waterways in their local area.

The group will run every other Thursday with the next meetings on 25/5/17, 8/6/17, 22/6/17, 6/7/17

For more information and an informal chat about volunteering opportunities with Staffordshire please contact John Keaveny on 07484 913049 or john.keaveny@canalrivertrust.org.uk


Improve part of your local area that thousands of people use every day, meet likeminded people from your local area who also care about the canals, learn new skills while working.

Skills required

Any skills you can bring to the group will be greatly appreicated and hopefully we can find a way to put these skills into practice. The most important thing to bring however is enthusiasm and a willingness to help.
