I live locally…

Soon we’ll be launching a range of family friendly events and activities based at the canal-side for you to enjoy.

In the coming months we’ll be offering some festive family fun, a New Year’s day out to remember and lots of easy ways to enjoy the canal and get active. We’re excited to share our ideas with you (and to hear what you’d like) so keep an eye on our news and our social media channels!

I want to volunteer…

As well as our long-standing lock-keeping roles, we are developing a wider range of volunteer opportunities.

Do you want to learn new things, share a skill or pass on knowledge? Are you a walker, a tinkerer, or do you care about the environment? Are you creative, a wildlife watcher, or do you enjoy being on the water?

If you have an hour, a day, or a week to offer, we will have a way for you to get involved. As each opportunity takes shape we’ll offer it here for you to consider how you can take part locally.

I’m a local Business…

We would be interested in hearing from businesses if you are:

  • interested in sponsoring some of our activity.
  • looking to host a corporate event on the ‘Jaggy Thistle’.
  • considering an interesting volunteering experience for your staff.
