Volunteers required for Canal & River Trust clean-up – This weekend

Posted on Updated on

Canal & River TrustThe Canal & River Trust, the charity that cares for 2,000 miles of historic waterways in England and Wales, is organising a clean-up of the Calder and Hebble Navigation canal at Elland, after the Boxing Day floods caused widespread damage to the towpath and dumped rubbish and other debris.

The Trust is holding a volunteer event between 10am and 1pm on Saturday 23 January focussed on the canal between Elland Lock and Park Nook lock. Local people can help repair the towpath, rebuild a damaged dry stone wall and clear the rubbish that the flood waters have dropped.
