Volunteer with the Waterway Recovery Group

Waterway Recovery Group is part of IWA and works to restore often disused and un-navigable waterways. WRG owns a fleet of vans, and a range of heavy duty equipment including excavators, dumpers, pumps, mixers and winches - all used on their volunteer Canal Camps.

Volunteering with WRG is often more physically demanding than taking part in an IWA work party but is just as rewarding. Tasks include demolishing brickwork, brick laying and driving dumpers. You’ll be guided in whatever you’re asked to do making this a great opportunity to learn new skills. If this sounds like your thing then join WRG on a Canal Camp and make a difference to our waterways!

For more information about WRG and volunteering with them (including prices) visit the WRG pages or contact Jenny Black at jenny.black@waterways.org.uk or on 01494 783 453.
