Apologies for the very late notice but I'm afraid that tomorrow's work party has had to be cancelled. Unfortunately I am now unable to attend due to a work-related issue and it is too late to find anyone else to lead the day. The next work party will be on 26th June, as previously notified.
Please also don't forget that we will be at Etruria Canals Festival the weekend after next, 3rd and 4th June. Do come along and find out more about recent developments on the Inland Waterways Association stand.

Firstly, thanks to those of you who have attended work parties over the past couple of months. Our work party dates have coincided with some pretty variable weather recently, but we have managed to stay on top of things, keeping the site looking tidy. This has been particularly useful as we have had an increased number of visitors down there recently, including a television crew from ITV who were filming activities with young people as part of the Feral Spaces project.

Last week we hosted our first work party of the year, cutting back and burning vegetation near to the Luke Street entrance to the site, as well as doing a litter pick along the whole site. Thanks to the volunteers who turned up and made this a successful day, even though the weather did its best to put out our bonfire in the morning!

Apologies for the late notice but I'm afraid that tomorrow's work party has been cancelled. Along with, it seems, half the nation I am recovering from the flu virus that is going around and am not yet up to spending a full day outdoors. Unfortunately I've not been able to arrange for someone else to lead the group so we will have to call it off.
Thanks to everyone who came to the work party on 3rd December. This was a well-attended work party and we got lots done.

Over the past couple of months our volunteers have concentrated on clearing the area closest to the Trent & Mersey Canal. We have recently been granted a sum by Stoke-on-Trent City Council to allow us to improve access to the site and this link is the one we plan to concentrate on. There is not a formal footpath in this area and the ground is very uneven at present but is an attractive and well-used link from Middleport, through our site, to the network of footpaths at the Grange and Festival Park.

We've had a busy few months at Burslem Port. As our Facebook followers will know, recent work parties have cleared vegetation at the junction with the Trent & Mersey Canal, through the narrows section and near to the warehouse. In March we also joined forces with Middleport Matters for the annual spring clean across the area.
