The Shropshire Union Canal Society has offered our moorer's a special deal, membership for only £10 for single, joint or family memberships and as an Overwater Moorer if you join during this February you will get 18 months for the annual price.
The Society's aims are twofold: to protect and enhance the historic Shropshire Union system and to restore the Montgomery Canal to navigation
To fulfil those aims the Society holds regular work parties on the Montgomery Canal and the rest of the Shropshire Union system, and maintains an extensive fundraising programme.
The Society's volunteers have done a substantial amount of work towards restoring the Montgomery Canal, including the restoration of 10 locks. The focus for restoration work parties is now to extend the watered channel at the northern end of the Monty. At present volunteers are working from Bridge 84 to Bridge 85.
On the enhancement side, the Society has provided mooring rings at many sites on each of the canals, some sites include picnic tables and even barbecue stands for all users of the canals to use, from local residents out for a stroll to the long distance hiker, and many of the seats along the towpaths have been sourced through the Society who will consider any facility which will improve the canal amenities.
By joining the Society, you can become part of a vibrant and active group and make a meaningful contribution to the wellbeing of our waterways.
