Autumn Canal Clean-up 12-13 October 2018

Join us for our Clean-up of the Grand Union Canal from Fenny Stratford to Leighton Buzzard.

This twice-yearly event is organised by IWA Milton Keynes Branch, sponsored by Wyvern Shipping Co Ltd and supported by Canal & River Trust and The Parks Trust. Everyone is welcome whether by boat or on foot. You can litter-pick from the towpath and hedges, or work aboard a boat to retrieve items from the canal or opposite bank. Hi-vis jackets, gloves and hard hats etc. are provided, but please bring your own safety footwear (steel-capped boots mandatory on workboats). Tea and coffee are provided, but please bring your own lunch. If you are under 18, you must be part of a supervised group. We look forward to seeing you!
