Buckingham Canal Society By Buckingham Canal Society

We have partially restored a section of the Buckingham Canal at Hyde Lane. Now we need to keep it in tip-top condition. Our volunteers need equipment and safety gear to carry out this work.

Our volunteers need hand tools, like loppers and rakes, small mechanical tools like strimmers and electric wheelbarrows. We need to provide our volunteers with the right safety gear like gloves, hi-viz vest and boots. We also need a container to store all this stuff to keep it safe and ready for use. More planting as appropriate and some benches for people to sit and enjoy the countryside.

What we'll deliver:

  • keep the footpath available for all users
  • keep the canal clean and encourage wildlife
  • maintain the planting and develop further to provide a green/blue corridor

Why it's a great idea:

Many people have an interest in wildlife; approximately 1 in 10 UK adults are members of an environment and/or conservation group. Wildlife can give us a sense of wellbeing, helping us to relax and improve our mental and physical health. Biodiversity provides humans with vital (and often undervalued) services such as climatic stability, clean air and water, pollination and flood protection . Visitors who come to see wildlife and attractive landscapes spend money and contribute to the local economy. A biodiverse area is also more likely to be a desirable place to live and work. The natural environment is an important part of local heritage, contributing to a sense of place and creating much of what makes Buckinghamshire distinctive. Biodiversity is a key aspect of sustainable development, ensuring that we pass on a healthy, functioning natural environment to future generations.

Steps to get it done:

  • Keep footpath fully accessible

Our aim is to restore the Buckingham Canal to full navigation in the interests of conservation, biodiversity and local quality of life, and to use the restoration as a catalyst for wider social, economic and environmental regeneration in areas neighbouring the canal.
