The Trust are actively involved in a range of voluntary tasks, over weekends and in our free time, to maintain and restore the entire canal corridor.
Whether you are interested in learning or participating in hedgelaying, 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 gallery page for some of the images of our work parties.
The Trust has the appropriate insurance for members undertaking work party activities. All work parties will have an appropriately appointed leader. Use of some equipment is restricted to those that have the appropriate training certification. Details of the insurance cover are available on request from Chris ReesFitzPatrick.
If you would like to come and join one of our friendly work parties please see the work parties diary page for dates and locations.
