Wednesfield – Our Great Canal!

Interested in the Essington and Wyrley Canal? Do you like what is taking place on the canal here in Wednesfield and Wolverhampton?

I like the voluntary work I do on the canal. It is rewarding and it is satisfaction for me.

We have this year created a Local Nature Reserve of great standing. With  the ‘Hands on Wednesfield’ volunteers we are all working hard together to deliver a great Wednesfield Canal Festival on this Bentley Bridge site on August 10 and 11th  2019.

Please if you like the message that is on this video, please comment. It is so important that all that you see taking place in and around our canal, is recognised as being not only for the Wildlife which is great. But also for people, families, boaters, individuals that like nature, business and commerce. Its a Partnership that can only get better.

We have a great resource please lets use it to the full!
