Update: please note meeting place will be the entrance to the canal from Water Street – 6th April 2018
The JQNF is adopting the Farmers Bridge flight of locks, most of which run through the JQ. The next session will be on Sunday 8th April at 11am.
The Canal & River Trust supply the necessary equipment (paint, brushes, gardening gloves, weeding tools, etc). We’re alway looking for new helpers and you’re welcome to join us. You don’t need to make a long term commitment, you’re welcome to attend for just one session! But please email Thomas at twildish [at] gmail [dot] com so we know to expect you.
Date: Sunday 8th April 11am. Meeting place: [bridge accessed from Fleet Street, by Islington Gates.] New meeting place (added 6th April): entrance to the canal from Water Street
Forthcoming dates are: Sun 8th Apr | Sat 5th May | Sun 3rd Jun | Sat 7th Jul | Sun 5th Aug | Sat 1 Sept | Sun 7 Oct. Saturdays will be from 1pm and Sundays from 11am. We usually meet for about three hours.
Over the year, activities we will be doing will fall into three main categories:
– Maintenance: e.g, painting locks & metal work / managing vegetation / removing graffiti
– Canal improvements: e.g. installing planters (on the towpath) / planting other vegetation / commissioning public art for the canal (although this would be in the long term and not in the first year)
– Community events: e.g. doing events as part of Heritage Week
We will keep you updated on our progress over the year, and we hope you’ll be able to join us!
