Opportunities to help with award-winning canal restoration

The Wey & Arun Canal Trust needs volunteers to support its growing number of restoration projects.

We are looking for help from people who can take on various administration roles.

Particularly needed are volunteers to help with restoration support and publicity, which are vital jobs as more and more canal is restored.

The Trust has active projects at three sites along the 23-mile route, with work on other sections in various stages of planning.

National awards have been won for the new High Street bridge and lock at Loxwood and the Loxwood Canal Centre.

“We have had enormous success in fully restoring various sections and the rate of progress is increasing,” said Trust chairman Sally Schupke. “More restoration help is needed and we have a number of vacancies, mostly involving working from home.”

Anyone interested in filling one of the roles can attend a special event at the Billingshurst Centre, Billingshurst, West Sussex, on Saturday, April 23rd, before the Trust’s Annual Meeting.

Potential volunteers can drop in to chat about the opportunities between 11.30am and 2pm.
