Bit In The Middle

Here at Buckingham Canal Society we are are always open to other groups coming along and helping us out on one of our restoration activities. We have good relationships with many companies and organisations who regularly provide volunteers for our work parties.

Sometimes we need some more specialised and experienced help. This is where working with Waterways Recovery Group (WRG) comes into play. Over the years we’ve hosted a number of weekend work parties. We arrange accommodation in village halls or sports pavilions where the group can kip down for a couple of nights, and in return they provide two days of effort and skills.

Back in June we had WRG’s Bit In The Middle (BITM) group come and join us for the weekend, helping us out with some heavy lifting and construction work on Bridge No1 at Cosgrove. Their current newsletter has a very interesting article describing the weekend, and one of their members has produced a short video documenting some of the work undertaken.

You can read their newsletter here:

Many thanks to WRG BITM for all the hard work you put in. We look forward to having you visit us again in the not too distant future.
