Staff, volunteers and partners talk about life working with and for The Waterways Trust
Waterways Action Squad is going
from strength to strength. More than 700 young people have take
part in events and activities along our waterways since the project
got under way in July 2009.
It is crucial that we help the next generation to build a
connection with our canals and rivers so they are looked after and
used for years to come.
Another project in Scotland which has helped several young
people gain much needed work experience is nearing completion.
Three Modern Apprentices have spent a year working on our
environmental improvement project at Auchinstarry Basin on the
Forth & Clyde Canal, Scents &
Sensitivities. They have learned how to landscape, lay
paths, plant hedgerows and build fences. Hopefully these new skills
and practical work experience will help them get a job in the
future. We'll be celebrating everything that has been achieved
through the Scents and Sensitivities project in March.
