This is the first of two online Welcome Events for you to find out more about what volunteer and participatory opportunities we have leading up to the event weekends TESTING TESTING TESTING at Ellesmere Yard on 21/22 August and 3-5th September.
The unique heritage status of Ellesmere Yard as the UK’s only remaining operational canal yard, dates back to1806. It is a very special set of buildings. Early stage plans for its future see it as a hub for making & design, sustainable land use, heritage crafts and enterprise.
At the Welcome Event, we will tell you more about the things we are doing and you can see what you might like to get involved in, including:
· Heritage Retold: Build your knowledge of the unique heritage of the Yard to become a tour guide and work with an artist to create a heritage event for the community
· Land Potential: Undertake wildlife surveys and help enhance biodiversity with a local ecologist and a permaculture expert
· Connectivity and Access: Help us experiment to make a temporary crossing across the canal and conduct a survey of walking and cycling access routes
· Have you practical, administrative or social media skills that you can share too.
You will be part of a friendly creative team with every chance to bring your own interests and skills into the mix. Training will be given.
All activities will be for small groups only. The programme will follow UK Government Covid safety guidelines.
