The Trust is actively involved in a range of voluntary tasks, over weekends and in our free time, to maintain and restore the entire canal corridor.
For those love working outdoors…
Whether you are interested in learning or participating in hedge laying, operating a chain saw or merely performing vegetation removal, we have a role for you!
This is a wonderful way of working outdoors, restoring our green space and providing a recognised service for residents bordering the canal corridor. In the past we have restored Borrowash Top Lock, Ullicker’s Bridge and Swarkestone Bridge (the little one over the remaining stub of the Derby canal not the causeway over the Trent flood plain!). Please see the the Working Parties page for a gallery of our more recent activities!
The Trust has the appropriate insurance for members undertaking work party activities. All work parties will have an appropriately appointed leader and First Aider. Details of the insurance cover are available on request from Chris ReesFitzPatrick at firstname.lastname@example.org. Use of some equipment is restricted to those that have the appropriate training certification.
