Coins falling













Help us gain funding and equipment

Its been half a centuraty since the creek was looked after. Having enough volunteers to help with restoration work will only go so far. Restoring WHARFS, lock gates and community facilities amongst other things can quickly get expensive. From donations to gift aid, fund raising to crowdfunding, becoming a trust member or seeing if you have any old tools to help us listed on our wishlist. There are many ways to get involved without having to don on a pair of wellies or a life jecket.



Sharing is Caring
