Unfortunately due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are very sorry but we are unable to accept new volunteer applications. Please check back here over the next few months for updates.

The objectives of Avon Navigation Trust are to administer, maintain and improve the River Avon as an inland waterway for the use of the public.  We need your help!  Volunteers provide much needed assistance to the Trust; their work is vital in maintaining and improving this historic waterway, and create goodwill amongst the boaters and other users on this beautiful river.

Volunteering can be very rewarding and many people will appreciate the work you have done.
