About WRG North West

LATEST

Due to us having to cancel the dig at Cromford, we now have a replacement dig on the Hollinwood Canal 14/15 September.  Work includes tirforing and scrub bashing. 

Meet at Daisy Nook carpark (postcode:  M35 9WJ).  Please contact Mike Chase to let him know if you are going.  No formal accommodation but please contact Mike if you are not local as he might be able to arrange something for you.

Read the latest North West WRG News.

WRG NW is based in Manchester and, as well as organising working weekends, they have also raised lots of money to fund their work by means of 'Paperchases' - waste paper collections. Unfortunately, the paper merchant who have been providing the container to collect the paper have decided that it is no longer viable and so our last paperchase was on 7 April 2018.

WRG (North West) will still be very glad of any book collections. If anyone wishes to donate books they do not need anymore please contact John Foley. We are fundraising by selling those (100s) of books we still have at rallies and events.

WRG NW holds ad-hoc (committee type) meetings approximately every two months to discuss the working parties and sales stands.  If you would like to come along, please see the details on the ad-hoc page.

BOOK STUFF - contact John Foley if you can help

Waterways World. Still looking for a copy of the August 1988 issue – we already have a copy of the article we want but need an original.

And just a reminder! Just what is happening to all those lovely Mills and Boon books people used to give us by the dozen? We have a very good customer for them and he's losing faith in us, so please talk nicely to any closet M&B reader you know and offer to make space on their shelves. Any age or condition, especially the older editions.
