We teamed up with the Basingstoke Canal Authority and Aldershot Garrison to clear vegetation off the canal towpath last month. On three days, soldiers based in the Garrison, along with staff and volunteers from local businesses and organisations cleared back vegetation from the tow path in preparation for surfacing work that is being carried out in conjunction with the Aldershot Urban Extension (AUE).
Two of our new sites, Queen’s Copse and Prince’s Wood, are adjacent to the canal and the towpath and will form part of the Wellesley Trail which will link all of our new AUE sites.
A big thank you to all of the volunteers who turned up and helped on the Canal Clear-up Days.
