Volunteer with us for a work party on the Ashton Canal.

Activities will include litter picking, trolley fishing, weeding, perhaps even harvesting some of the produce planted in Spring, preparing the path in the lockside garden for weed control membrane and edging prior to resurfacing. Provided the rain holds off this time, we hope to scrape and repaint the lock gates.

Please meet at 10.30. Gloves and tools will be provided but please bring footwear suitable for gardening along with your lunch and a drink.

We will meet at the usual location of Lock 7 on the Ashton Canal, close to Sport City and the Etihad Stadium.
