So, what's all the talk of volunteer work I hear you ask?

The Waterway Recovery Group

The WRG is a voluntary organisation who - along with local councils, the enviromental agency, Inland Waterways Association and anyone else foolish to get involed - are helping to restore Britain's canal network.

Concentrating primarily on the derelict canals, they run both weekend and multi week camps to try and return our canal network back to its former glory.

I've always loved the canal network, and if I'm not kayaking down them, then - as Lin & Leo will testify - I'm happy to go a traipsing down the towpath stopping off at the various pubs and teahouses that you find around here so I figure it's only fair that I put something back.

It's heartbreaking to see the state that they canals have been left to fall into, not to mention they are seen by many as a dumping ground for rubbish, someone has to make sure they're still around in a state good enough for others to love them to.
