A call for canal adoptions - volunteer today

Lancaster canal Published Thursday, 22 February 2018

Canal River Trust are looking for volunteers to look after stretches of waterway across the canal in Wyre.

If you belong to a recognised group or club and can commit to adopting your local canal for at least 12 months Canal River Trust would love to hear from you! 

In the past scout groups, resident’s associations, businesses, schools, charities and ‘friends of’ groups have adopted their local stretch of canal and made a huge difference.

Work has included towpath clean ups, installation of planters and garden areas, vegetation clearance and much more. Canal and River Trust will support with equipment and materials and work with each group to try and achieve their goals for the canal.
