Manchester Branch Work Parties

Monthly Work Parties

Manchester Branch work parties take place on the third Saturday of each month, from 10am to 2pm. We carry out different tasks each month depending on the job involved but generally they include vegetation clearance, litter picking, painting and pulling rubbish out of the canal in a variety of locations around Greater Manchester. Everyone is welcome and no are skills needed. Stout footwear, waterproofs and gardening-type clothes are recommended and please bring packed lunch. If you would like to come along please contact Barry McGuinness on barry_m(at)

Yes, we can be found on Facebook!
