Supported by a small team of staff, IWA branch volunteers are organising more work parties and cleanups across the waterway network than ever before. Last year, our volunteers spent around 15,000 hours clearing the canals, painting, improving towpaths and much more. These work parties can see between 10 and 100 volunteers gathering to make a visible difference to a section of canal or river.
Find out what projects our volunteers have been up to in our monthly work party round-ups.
