Towpath Taskforce - Dobbs Weir - Saturday 17th September 2022
Starts: 17 September 2022
Dobbs Weir, River Lee
Join us on Saturday 17th September from 10am to 3.30pm at Dobbs Weir for an enjoyable day's work on the beautiful River Lee. We’ll be helping to give the area a general tidy up and a much needed coat of paint on the footbridge over the weir.
All tools and equipment will be provided, together with expert and friendly support and refreshments. We'll be delighted to see you there. You're welcome to join us for the morning or bring a packed lunch and stay all day!
Meet us in the car park over the road from the Fish and Eels public house, on Dobbs Weir road, EN11 0AZ.
The weir is a short walk away. Parking is available.
The nearest station is Rye House and is 1.4miles away, although it is a lovely walk along the River Lee
What's in it for you?
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.
What skills are we looking for?

Please wear old clothes appropriate for the weather conditions (e.g. waterproof jacket or sun hat) and sturdy soled footwear ideally work boots, walking boots or wellies.
