This winter our stalwart band of volunteers from the IWA Lichfield Branch on the Offside Vegetation Clearance project have been concentrating on the Coventry Canal from Fazeley Junction towards Nuneaton.

This has continued the great work done in past three winters, seeing huge amounts of vegetation being cleared from the Trent & Mersey and Coventry Canals. With equipment and training provided by Canal & River Trust our volunteers have progressed from Great Haywood to Fradley on the Trent & Mersey and from Fradley down to Fazeley Junction on the Coventry Canal.

Unfortunately this winter has seen out efforts severly restricted by the Covid situation. Hopefully we will be able to restart next October when things get back to normal.
