Why Volunteer?

The objectives for which the Trust is established are the preservation, maintenance in good order, and improvement of the canals, navigable rivers and inland waterways for the use of the public.  We need your help to run the Navigation.  Volunteers provide much needed assistance to the Trust; their work is vital to maintaining and improving this historic waterway, and they create goodwill amongst the boaters and other users on our beautiful river.

Volunteer to give back something to your area.  Volunteering can be more rewarding than being paid, because more people can appreciate the work you have done.
