The Whilton and Buckby Locks Association (WBLA), the local canal volunteer group on the Grand Union Canal is keen to recruit new members for working parties both from the local community who have an interest in the waterways and from the narrow-boating fraternity at nearby marinas.

 Many people use the canal facilities for recreational purposes including boating, angling, observing wildlife, walking, cycling and jogging, etc. and WBLA would appreciate assistance from likeminded people to maintain and improve the environment.  So if you can volunteer a few hours of your time to support WBLA with team activities such as lock painting and gardening they would love to hear from you.


Any practical experience would be welcome although we are looking primarily for people who can help with painting lock gates or gardening.
