Volunteer Work Boat and Canal Repairs.

Our plans are being made to start work on wash hole repairs along the Worcester and Birmingham Canal. We will start work on the area between Shortwood Tunnel and Alvechurch.

We will start at Tardebigge on Wednesday 8th November at 9.00am.The first job will be to fill sandbags in the morning which will then be taken by the work boat to where they are needed.

I have the following dates booked with helmsman to use the boat in November 2017:

Wed 8th, Thur 9th, Wed 15th, Thur 16th, Sat 18th, Sun 19th, Sat 25th, Sun 26th, Wed 29th, Thur 30th. I will circulate dates for December when details are confirmed.

We could still use one or two extra people on each date please, so I hope members will be able to join in with this. This work will count as planned maintenance of the canal and so is a valuable contribution.

Our society has a lot going on now. We really do need the members help with some of this work load. If you can give some hours, please send an email or a phone call.

Non-members are welcome to join us as well. Anyone can arrive at Tardebigge and register on our attendance sheet and so contribute to our canals.  You even get free biscuits!!

The address of the site is Tardebigge New Wharf, Alcester Road, Tardebigge, Bromsgrove, B60 1NF
