Swansea Canal welcomes volunteers from all over the UK and Europe this week. They are part of the Waterway Recovery Group Summer Camp who will be staying at the Ynyscedwyn Scout Hut from Saturday night, the 4th of August to the morning of Saturday the 11 th of August. Their team leader is Ian Gaston who is from Northern Ireland  and we are delighted to welcome him back as he was a member of last years camp.  Our own Michelle Davidson will be learning the leadership ropes from him as she has completed her weekend WRG Leaders training course and  now needs to put those skills to practical use.
