Restoration volunteers get younger every day!

The Shrewsbury and Newport Canals Trust (SNCT) holds monthly work parties on the Shrewsbury canal adjacent to Lesley Owen Way in Shrewsbury. Fortunately this section has never been filled in, so the canal bed is largely still there. Over the last 18 months the Trust has cleared a section about 400 meters long of scrub and trees, using a Tirfor winch to get the tree stumps out, and it is very close to being ready for lining and re-watering

Scouts The 26th Shrewsbury Scouts were out in force at the Shrewsbury work party on Saturday 25th October when twenty Scouts helped to collect scrub and debris from the canal bed for burning and also pulled tree stumps together to make a "bug home".

The scrub fire was later used to cook marshmallows for the hungry workers - traditional scouting fare! Andy Dady, the Trust's work party leader commented "This has been a great day. These youngsters worked enthusiastically the whole time they were here and had a lot of fun too. Their help has been invaluable and we very much look forward to seeing them again."
