As well as Branch organised task parties on the Northampton Arm, there are a number of Canal Societies and Adoption Groups actively assisting the Canal & River Trust in maintaining and conserving our inland waterways throughout Northamptonshire. They all welcome volunteers and full training will be given. There will probably be a group near you who will be delighted to hear from you.
