Rochdale Canal

What's involved?

Due to the current situation with Coronavirus, this is on hold at the moment. If you sign up, we’ll endeavour to update you as soon as we can.
The Friends of Rochdale 9 (FoR 9) hold regular work parties on the Rochdale Canal between Locks 92 and 84 in Manchester city centre. Taking care of the canal at key locations projects they have undertaken include installation of artwork, planters, floating planting along with regular vegetation clearance and general maintenance. The group meets on the second Sunday of the month please make contact below to confirm the next working party location.

What's in it for you?

All volunteers are assured of a warm friendly welcome. You don't have to come for the whole day, just come for a couple of hours and try it! It is a great opportunity to make a positive difference to the canal environment in the heart of Manchester.

What skills are we looking for?

No special skills are needed for the day and everyone works at their own pace. If you've got specific skills that you think may be helpful, please let FoR 9 know. Visit their website for details
