I work for a charity called the Waterway Recovery Group (www.wrg.org.uk) which restores the derelict canals of England and Wales

We are looking for volunteers who have a professional background in bricklaying, machine operation, piling and other skills who might be interested in volunteering for a week. Three of our projects need specific skills: Cotswold canals need bricklayers to help rebuild two locks, on the Basingstoke canal we need excavator drivers to help install a pipeline and other works and Herefordshire and Gloucestershire canals needs excavator drivers. If you would like to help, please contact jenny.black@waterways.org.uk.
