Join us on the third Thursday of every month between 10am and 1pm for an enjoyable day’s work on the beautiful Sheffield & South Yorkshire Navigation in Mexborough. Tasks will vary and change with the seasons – tasks could include lock maintenance, painting, vegetation management, planting, towpath repair, wildlife habitat improvements and much more. All tools and equipment will be provided, together with expert and friendly support and refreshments. Volunteer Team Leader, Lucy Dockray will be delighted to see you there. Please feel free to attend any or all sessions.
Towpath Taskforces are for individuals who want to volunteer with the Trust. If you are looking to join us with a team of colleagues from work or community group, please see our Volunteering in Partnership pages (https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/volunteer/volunteer-in-partnership) or contact the Trust on firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can discuss a partnership with your group or company.
The Towpath Taskforce offers a great way to meet other local Trust volunteers and staff, learn new practical skills, hear about other volunteer opportunities or just spend a few hours outdoors improving your local waterway environment.
