Urban moorings is a community-based project aiming to provide the spaces for both the boating and local community to make use of.
It is based on what was a derelict scrap of land jointly owned by Canal and River Trust and Wolverhampton Council.
We had just begun to open to visitors and volunteers when that nasty little virus struck, and we had to close our gates to the public.
But on Saturday ——– Urban Moorings C.I.C. will at last be able to open their gates again. We are holding an introduction/ open day for visitors who are maybe just interested in what we do and anyone who wants to become a volunteer and become part of the Urban Moorings project. Our gates will be open from 10am to 3pm.
You are welcome to come and have a look around and see what we have achieved so far, meet the team, ask questions, find out what is planned for the future and how you can help. Have a cup of tea or coffee and a chat. We don’t bite !!
You can register as a volunteer if you would like to join in our project or you can just have a wander around and find out what Urban Moorings is about. We may have the BBQ going. But there will defiantly be cake.
Our volunteer days will be Mondays, Tuesdays and Saturdays from 10am to 3pm. You will need to book a day as numbers/places will be limited due to the social distancing rules we all need to abide by.
Face coverings will be required in all enclosed areas but mostly it is common sense. We all know the guidelines by now.
Our volunteer opportunities will be project led. There are several projects in the pipeline such as painting the sheds or clearing the front area and creating a garden there.
