We can help teams from 6 to over 40 with opportunities all year round.

Your chance to give back – get hands-on with a variety of tasks. You will get your hands dirty in our hedgerows, canal bed, locks bridges and much more. It is great fun. Don’t just take our word for it!

Buckingham Canal Society runs work parties on alternate Thursdays and every second Sunday of the month throughout the whole year on four sites along the disused Buckingham Canal, one of them being a designated nature reserve.

We welcome companies to join us on site for a ‘Team Building Day’. These usually take place between 10am-4pm with the Society providing all tools and equipment and training given where necessary. Health and Safety is very important to us. We always provide a safe working environment and a health and safety talk is given before the start of each work party.

Companies we have worked with in the past include: Santander, HBOS Bank, NHBC Insurance, Lloyds Bank, Lyondell Bassell, Open University, Baxter Health Care, Co-op, Daimler, Mars Horsefeed, Mercedes and the Mormon Church.

Tasks performed by these groups include: installing wooden gates along a footpath, planting saplings, learning hedge-laying, making wildlife habitat piles, clearing overgrown footpaths, clearing reeds from the bed of the canal and helping to re-build and re-point a bridge and a lock on the disused canal.
