The Canal & River Trust is here so you have a place to escape. A place where you can step off the pavement, onto the towpath and breathe.

We are a charity, and we are entrusted to care for 2,000 miles of waterways in England and Wales.

We all live in an increasingly fast-paced and crowded world. Our historic waterways are the antidote to this. They provide an unfenced, ‘no turnstiles’ opportunity to interact with history and nature next to soothing water.

Many people don’t realise that our waterways are only here thanks to the efforts of thousands of volunteers and the generous donations you give.

Over 200 years old

On top of maintaining 2,000 miles of canals and rivers, which are often over 200 years old, we are responsible for an enormous network of bridges, embankments, towpaths, aqueducts, docks and reservoirs and more.

From improving towpaths for cyclists and creating new wildlife habitats to maintaining our distinctive infrastructure, we are constantly working to make our canals and rivers the very best they can be.

And thanks to our waterways millions of children have the chance to experience local wildlife – even to see a kingfisher or an otter close up. Those struggling with the pressures of day-to-day life have somewhere to rejuvenate themselves. And many of us have a place on our doorstep where we can simply stretch our legs and soak up 200 years of history.

Our waterway network is a national treasure. It makes people’s lives better. We’re here to ensure that it is protected forever.

Clothing is whatever people would wear to garden or to do DIY – suitable footwear is wellington boots, work boots or walking/hiking shoes – NOT trainers!
We aim to complete one main project during the day (e.g. building a shed, or erecting a new fence), but due to the nature of the work, there may also be other smaller tasks around the farm, ranging from painting signs to mucking out animal enclosures. Whatever the activity, we promise that it will be challenging, rewarding and require oodles of team work!

At Mercer, we make a difference in the lives of more than 110 million people every day by advancing their health, wealth, and careers. We’re in the business of creating more secure and rewarding futures for our clients and their employees — whether we’re designing affordable health plans, assuring income for retirement, or aligning workers with workforce needs. Using analysis and insights as catalysts for change, we anticipate and understand the individual impact of business decisions, now and in the future. We see people’s current and future needs through a lens of innovation, and our holistic view, specialised expertise, and deep analytical rigor underpin each and every idea and solution we offer. For more than 70 years, we’ve turned our insights into actions, enabling people around the globe to live, work, and retire well. At Mercer, we say we Make Tomorrow, Today.

Based in the heart of South West London, Deen City Farm is one of the capital’s oldest community farms. Spread over 5 acres and home to animals of all shapes and sizes, we combine rural activities and education to actively engage local people, irrespective of their background or abilities.

The day involves arriving around 9am, with a short safety briefing before the start of activities. Lunch is flexible but is usually taken around 12.30 and the activities would wind up at about four. Whenever possible we aim to arrange one main project during the day (e.g. building a shed, or erecting a new fence), but due to the nature of the work we do, there may also be other smaller tasks around the farm, ranging from painting signs to mucking out animal enclosures. Whatever the activity, we promise that it will be challenging, rewarding and require oodles of team work!

At 1:00pm we will have a break and light refreshment will be served.

To clear our grounds and car parks – general gardening chores. Also our hall is used twice a month for elderly day centre but we never get around cleaning the tables, chairs and the walls of the hall. The Kitchen is another area which will be scrubbed throughly.

Seva activities are split into two this year. Firstly, Stanmore Country Park clean up which will include: weeding, park clean up and construction work to name a few. Secondly we will be sending a group of volunteers to feed those in need. Also, this Seva day there is an opportunity to sponsor a tree if you would like one planted at the Mandir. Prasad will be provided by the Mandir.

At Dharma Bhakti Manor, Seva Day is an opportunity to give back to not only the community but, each other. Join us this year to take part in various seva activities in the temple and the local parklands surrounding it.

Get involved in: weeding, gardening, painting, construction, cleaning the forest, rubbish collection and plenty of activities for kids!

Value of Seva
Seva, the act of selflessly giving, is an integral part of Hindu tradition and culture. It teaches us to be humble and grateful for the things we have by allowing us to give back to the society that we have been brought up in. Of the nine types of Bhakti, seva is the most accessible, as it can be done by all ages. By means of seva, we can become closer to God.

Tree planting
In addition to the regular Seva Day activities, this year we have provided the opportunity to plant trees in the woodlands within the temple grounds.

Over the years at Dharma Bhakti Manor, we have tried to make the temple grounds a place where wildife can flourish and the planting of trees allows the habitat of wildlife to expand. We also encourage planting trees, as it can help bring about a beautiful and serene environment in the surrounding area so that it can enjoyed by all devotees.
