WRG attracts a wide range of people, from young volunteers taking part in the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme; to waterway enthusiasts who wish to make a contribution to restoring and preserving the system; to people who just want to get outdoors and dirty, have fun and learn new skills. Volunteers attending our activities must be aged 18+, but apart from that ages doesn't matter, nor does previous experience.

Yes, as you can see anyone can volunteer for WRG, all you need is a positive, can do, attitude and some steel-toe capped boots.

If you can't volunteer for the whole week we have Regional Groups that always welcome new volunteers for a weekend dig.
