Green Spaces Volunteering - Rewley Road Swing Bridge

All ages and abilities are welcome.

At Rewley Road Swing Bridge, tasks will include small maintenance tasks on the bridge, its fixings and associated tracks as well as keeping on top of the vegetation on the banks of the channel, near to the bridges and creating a small area of meadow. We welcome anyone with railway engineering experience or interest to help us (we are being advised by experts and enthusiasts who assisted with the restoration) but as with all our work parties you will receive instruction and do not require any particular skills. If you would like to get involved in helping us take care of this space please get in touch.
