The next Work Party is
Cancelled
This page will be updated when we are able to tell you more.

We are sure it will come as no surprise that we have no choice than to cancel the next few CCT work parties. Apart from the current Corona virus requirements making them impossible, we would in any case not want to risk the health of our volunteers.

So, a second month when we won't be out there working to rid the Navigation of Floating American Pennywort and litter. Watch this space! We'll email subscribers to our mailing list and update this page when we re-start our CCT work parties.

However, while we have your attention, something that you will be able to participate in right now! Many will know of, or have heard of, Dudley Courtman. Dudley was instrumental in starting what became the Chelmer Canal Trust and it was Dudley who started our CCT work parties. Dudley died in 2018. As someone who was so important to the Navigation we plan to install a wooden bench in Dudley's memory, beside the Navigation towpath, upstream of Hoe Mill Lock

We need to raise about £800 for purchase and installation of the bench and have set up a Justgiving donation page. Please consider making a donation towards Dudley's Bench. As long as you are a basic rate tax-payer any donation you make will have 25% extra added to it as a result of Gift Aid. Follow this link to read more about Dudley and to make a donation: https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/Dudley. Whatever your interest in the Navigation, a main reason it still exists as a resource for all to use and enjoy results from Dudley's dedication to it. So, please give generously so that we can appropriately remember Dudley.
