A Day in the Life of a Volunteer: The Green Team

The Green Team have kindly given us a glimpse of a ‘Day in the Life’ volunteering at Dudley Canal and Tunnel Trust, have a read to find out more!

The Green Team are a disabled group that volunteer at Dudley Canal Tunnel Trust and are based at Blowers Green Pump House. We participate in ground maintenance, gardening and litter Picking along Dudley No.2 Canal.

On arrival to site we check what jobs are a priority and liaise with other gardening volunteers, collecting the required equipment from our tool shed.

One of our favourite jobs is weeding along the towpath where the boat trips run from. When the sun is shining it’s a lovely job to do, the customers on the boats are very complimentary and always tell our group we are doing a fantastic job. It’s a nice place to work and to watch the boats and people enjoying themselves.

If you would like any more information please do not hesitate to contact us, volunteering is very important to our group. Contact Dudley Canal and Tunnel Trust via email: info@dctt.org.uk, or telephone: 0121 557 6265.
