Montgomery Canal call for volunteers

 
Created on 11/10/2012 @ 20:56

 

This Saturday will see a tidy up organised by new Canal and River Trust (previously British Waterways) with help from the Friends of the Montgomery Canal.
 
Volunteers are invited to meet at the Tourist Information Centre (TIC) between 10am-3pm where instructions and equipment will be issued for different jobs including litter picking, painting and vegetation clearing.
 
Free refreshments will be provided and suitable clothing must be worn.
 
Paul Corner, Volunteer Co-ordinator for the North Wales and Borders region of the Canal & River Trust said: “Previously we’ve held annual Towpath Tidy events – however, these new Towpath Taskforce teams are designed to be regular, accessible and engaging so local communities can take on more ownership of their local waterway. One event a year can make a dent, but regular volunteer efforts will make a real difference to the thousands of people that use and visit them each week. There will be a variety of tasks specific to the need of the individual waterway and there’s always something to suit everyone.”
