The Canal Cottages scaffold is Up! Fancy lending a hand?

Despite Christmas and New Years there has been plenty of progress at both Draycott and the Canal Cottages; Hedges have been trimmed for the spring, and with great support of the working parties over the festive period we’ve got the site in a state where we can get the scaffolding set up to start the “real” work getting the Cottages back into a habitable state.

As the project progresses, we’re very conscious that every pound we can save in labour costs is more money that can be spent turning the Canal Cottages into a great asset for the local community, as well as visitors from further afield. Therefore, we’re very keen to get as many volunteers as possible involved in the restoration!

Whether you’re young or old; an experienced builder or D-I-Y wanna-be, or just fancy getting your hands dirty, we’d love for you to come along to our next working party at the Canal Cottages to find out more!

Please see our Calendar for the latest dates (and keep a look out for new working party dates and other events, as the calendar is updated regularly).
