About Oakham Canal Green Corridor Project
Oakham Canal Green Corridor Project aims to create a linear heritage, environment and leisure facility to the north of Oakham, based around the former Oakham Canal. We aim to work with landowners, tenant farmers and other groups to:
· Engage the local community in developing and maintaining this important leisure corridor.
· Preserve the remains of the Oakham Canal as a heritage asset and provide historical interpretation.
· Enhance the environment, improving footpaths and public access while developing habitats and diversity.
No additional details recorded for this opportunity.
When can I volunteer?
Start Date: 24/02/2023
End Date: 03/03/2023
We will start work on Saturday 25th Feb, scraping back the old path over that weekend, then laying the new aggregate path from Mon Feb 27th to Fri March 3rd. If we run over, we will continue work on the weekend of March 4th and 5th. We will need volunteers on all of the days, so if you fancy coming along, please let us know by replying to this Event, via Messenger, or via our website at www.oakhamcanal.org. It would be very helpful for planning purposes to know who is coming on each day. We will be working from the layby on Burley Road, Location C on the map (see facebook).
