The Wendover Arm Trust is a registered charity formed in February 1989, set up to promote the restoration of the Wendover Arm of the Grand Union Canal. It is a company limited by Guarantee and without share capital, and a registered charity and run by passionate volunteers who believe in preserving the inland waterways of this country for the benefit of the public.
The aims of the Trust are:
- To maintain and improve the waterway for the use and benefit of all.
- To promote the fullest use of the waterway by all forms of waterborne traffic and for all forms of local amenity, tourist and recreational, and water-related activities for the benefit of the public.
- To promote and educate the public in the history, use and associated wildlife of canals and inland waterways generally, and of the Arm in particular.
- To restore, reconstruct, preserve, and maintain canals and inland waterways and works and auxiliary works and buildings generally, provided that there is a net benefit to the public.
Barton Petroleum has been supporting the Trust for a number of years and we hope that anyone interested in conservation projects will be able to volunteer their valuable time to this worthwhile project.
The next Restoration Work Party is on Friday August 1st until Thursday August 7th and all are welcome to either spectate or muck in – new volunteers are most welcome and are needed to continue the project. if you would like to help please call restoration director Roger Leishman on 01442 874536 for details or call the Trust on 07457 181857 or visit the Wendover Arm Trust website.
