Polyseam: Helping to keep our canals clean

Polyseam is proud to announce that we have officially adopted a one-mile section of the canal running behind our factory. In collaboration with The Canal & River Trust, we are embarking on a year-long initiative to ensure its cleanliness and vitality. This remarkable endeavour has garnered the wholehearted support of our entire staff, who will be generously volunteering their time over the coming year.

The Canal & River Trust, hold a profound belief that life is enriched by water. Their mission encompasses a 2,000-mile-long, two-century-old network of canals, rivers, reservoirs, and docks, dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for all. Here’s a glimpse of what they stand for:

Creating Pathways

They endeavour to forge new routes to work, cultivate enjoyable spaces, and craft areas where people love to spend their time.

Community Building

Empowering individuals, granting them the opportunity to safeguard and enhance the places that hold significance for them, thereby fostering strong and connected communities.

Nurturing Growth

Their commitment extends to helping thousands of individuals, both young and old, develop their confidence and acquire valuable skills.

Caring for Nature

They diligently care for a 2,000-mile-long ‘green-blue ribbon,’ connecting countless wildlife habitats and allowing everyone to draw closer to nature, no matter where they reside. Responsibilities include safeguarding the UK’s invaluable heritage so that not only your children but also their descendants can connect with the rich tapestry of our history.

Ensuring Access

The Trust take pride in ensuring that 2,949 bridges, 1,582 locks, and 280 aqueducts remain accessible and fully operational, ready for use every hour of every day.


We are embarking on a journey to create a more vibrant, cleaner, and water-rich future for our community in collaboration with the Canal & River Trust. We invite you to join us in this extraordinary initiative, as we believe that life truly is better by the water.
