Our Midweek Working Party carries out a variety of work along the canal including clearing vegetation, brambles, fallen trees, scrub & reeds and general maintenance. Nick Houston, a Mid-Week Working Party volunteer since 2008, was hard at work on a November Wednesday when he was surprised and delighted to be joined by both his son and his grandson.

Grandson Charlie had an ‘Inset Day’ off from Rodborough School, Milford and son Jeremy used a ‘Volunteering Day’ away from Premier Miton Investors to take Charlie (already a life member) out for a day’s hard(ish) labour, clearing vegetation along the newly-acquired bridleway at Bonfire Hanger. Nick says they enjoyed it and learnt a lot. Jeremy and Charlie both enjoy kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding. Perhaps they will revisit Bonfire Hanger one day by water.

Would you like to volunteer with us ?  For more information on all our volunteer groups,  please go to our web-site and look at the Volunteer pages which includes opportunities for Duke of Edinburgh’s Award volunteering.  We also have hosted volunteering days for local schools and businesses and would  hear from you if you want to make an impact in your local community
