Working with Canal & River Trust
With the Canal & River Trust’s agreement, the Marina has ‘adopted’ a canal mile – from Potlocks Bridge (22) to Willington Road Bridge (24). The Volunteer Group’s work will extend to improving and enhancing the natural environment around the marina and along the canal and its towpath. The Canal & River Trust has offered a working boat to assist with vegetation cut backs and will be providing equipment and advice where appropriate.
The Volunteer group met on Sunday 5 February to walk our ‘adopted’ territory. It was a good opportunity to do a litter pick on the way, although this wasn’t helped with the light covering of snow on the ground!
