Canal Restoration Volunteer
Posted for The Inland Waterways Association
Waterway Recovery Group (WRG) has launched its new programme of unique weeklong residential volunteering opportunities, known as 'Canal Camps' designed to restore the derelict canals of England and Wales to their former glory. Canal Camps give you the chance to do your bit for the environment whilst having a fun holiday. There are 22 Canal Camps this year, to which volunteers are invited to get their hands dirty and try something completely different. Some of the tasks lined up this year include, restoring a length of the Montgomery Canal in Shropshire, the continuing excavation, restoration and rebuilding of Eisey Lock on the Cotswold Canals and a new addition; constructing a slipway on the River Avon, in Warwickshire
