WRG awards £1500 of training grants to volunteers

Date: 11th November 2016

Three volunteers have been awarded a Training Grant of up to £630 each to undertake training in the use of chainsaws. The volunteers are part of WRG's Forestry Team who carry out major scrub and tree clearance for canal restoration projects throughout England and Wales. This year the team have worked on several sites from Wey and Arun Canal in the south to the Uttoxeter Canal in the Midlands and it is hoped by training up more volunteers they can do even more work in 2017!

WRG's Training Grant has been set up to assist with the cost of training volunteers in skills associated with inland waterway restoration and is open to volunteers from any canal restoration project. More details can be found here.
