News on the work of our ‘Green Team’
The Trust relies heavily on volunteers to achieve its aims. We desperately need help in all areas. You can give as little or as much time as you can spare. Experience is not necessary, all you really need is enthusiasm!
We are also very much dependant on the generosity of our supporters. We have a number of ways you can donate. 100% of the money raised is spent on restoration work.
Take a walk along the Lichfield Canal’s Heritage Towpath Trail and discover a world of fascinating industrial and cultural history, and enjoy an important corridor for wildlife and nature.
You are welcome to visit us at any time and see the progress for yourself. Or you can stay at home and take a virtual flight along both our canals.
The Trust was founded in 1988 and has grown to almost 1,900 members throughout Britain.
You can join for as little as £10 per year which includes four issues of our magazine.
(Including CBW magazine)
