Waterway Recovery Group launches its Canal Camps for 2013

Issue date: 6th December 2012

IWA's Waterway Recovery Group (WRG) runs a programme of unique week-long residential volunteering opportunities, known as ‘Canal Camps’ designed to restore the derelict canals of England and Wales to their former glory. Canal Camps give you the chance to do your bit for the environment whilst having a fun holiday.

WRG has 23 Canal Camps planned for 2013 giving volunteers the chance to get involved in various activities such as the reprofiling and lining of the Lancaster Canal at Stainton, to the restoration of damaged brickwork on the Swansea Canal; or the rebuilding of towpaths on the Chelmer and Blackwater to the construction of a new lock on the Chesterfield Canal.

WRG also has two working holidays running this Christmas on the Uttoxeter Canal (Staffordshire) and on the Cotswold Canals at Eisey Lock from the 26th December 2012 - 1st January 2013.
