Burslem Port volunteer work parties

A new regular monthly work party will start in February 2015 on the line of the Burslem Branch Canal. You are invited to join our sessions on the fourth Tuesday of each month where we will undertake a range of activities to improve the line of the canal. Our first session will be on 24th February 2015, followed by 24th March, 28th April, 26th May.

Initial sessions will focus on cleaning up the area and more substantial tasks will follow on from this. All tools and equipment will be provided. Volunteers are advised to wear old clothes, stout shoes and to bring waterproofs in case of rain and a packed lunch if staying all day. Meet at 10am at Luke Street Middleport. Postcode for satnav is ST6 3LY. We will work until around 3pm but you are welcome to join us for just a few hours.

Please let us know if you are planning to attend so we can ensure that we have sufficient equipment for volunteers.

This work party is jointly organised by Burslem Port Trust and the Inland Waterways Association North Staffordshire & South Cheshire Branch.  Contact Steve Wood, email, tel: 07976 805858. You can also use the contact form to confirm your attendance or if you have any questions.
