We are ensuring all activities are Covid secure. If you sign up the regional team will contact you as soon as they're able to recruit you, thanks for your patience.

Come along and support us for our new Nottingham Towpath Taskforce, working with a team of volunteers to enhance the Notts Beeston Canal which runs through the centre of Nottingham, for an enjoyable day on the Canal, supporting us in caring for our valuable waterways.

The team will meet alternate Tuesdays, meeting at Castle Lock in Nottingham, and the days will run from 9.30am to 2.30pm.

All tools and equipment will be provided, together with expert and friendly support from our team - we will also provide a warm drink and maybe even a biscuit or two!!


The Towpath Taskforce offers a great way to meet other like-minded people from the local community and our local volunteering team. You can help to make a difference in maintaining and enhancing your local waterway as well as benefitting your own physical and mental wellbeing. You can learn new skills, hear about other volunteer opportunities or just spend a few hours enjoying the great outdoors.

Skills required

No previous experience or commitment is needed. Just come with some enthusiasm and willingness to give it a go. Wear strong footwear, clothes that you are happy to get dirty and a waterproof.
