Our window to the world

We organise or attend many events throughout the year, to promote the Trust and the work we do. At village fetes and town festivals, on dry land and on water, our volunteers are flying the flag, talking to members of the public, explaining the aims and the achievements of the Trust.  We have speakers who give talks to clubs and youth groups. And when our voluteers are working on public sections of the canal they will happily talk enthusiastically about what they are doing. 

Come and join in
