The Waterways Trust is calling for people who have volunteered on their canal project to come and enjoy a Christmas celebration as a reward for all their hard work since the project got underway in September.

The event takes place between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. on Tuesday at Canal Cottage, Lowerhouse Lane, Rosgrove, and will bring people up to date with the project and let them know how they can get involved with future plans.

Emma Bartlet, Canal Communities Officer, explains: “We have received fantastic support from so many people over the past few months. This celebration is a great way to show our thanks and tell people about future activities we’d love for them to get involved with.”

The free event will be an opportunity to share stories of the canals, meet other volunteers, enjoy a boat trip and tasty snacks.
