Note, due to the current Covid-19 situation, Kescrg is following the WRG decision to suspend all work party activity on a rolling 8-week basis to protect our volunteers.

Digs Dates for 2020:

Nationally, 2020 is an interesting year for voluntary canal restoration- a number of big projects have either completed or moved beyond the volunteer stages, and there are a number of new big projects that are currently in the advanced planning & permissions stages, especially on the Cotswolds Canals and Wey and Arun. This means there are few projects in the southern half of the country for us to work on at present. Hopefully the dates for the second half of the year will be fleshed out as these new projects are confirmed and start to progress. Certainly 2021 will be an exciting year.
