Environment Matters

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, we can teach you all you want to know.  If you do have experience then so much the better. All you really need is enthusiasm!

We are also very much dependant on the generosity of our supporters for which we thank them greatly.

We have a number of ways you can donate. 100% of the money raised is spent on restoration work.

We urgently need to raise £1,000,000 - please support the David Suchet appeal.

Our Vision...

To reinstate the historic Lichfield and Hatherton Canals for the benefit of the community.
The natural wildlife corridor from Huddlesford to Hatherton will provide a valuable amenity for walkers, cyclists, boaters and visitors to use and will bring prosperity to the area. This project will also provide an opportunity for young people to learn about our history, our heritage and our environment.
