Together we can do it

Whether it’s to get fitter, meet new people, or do something worthwhile for the environment and community, volunteering with the Wey & Arun Canal Trust ticks all the boxes.

The Trust is holding a number of taster days for those interested in joining its working parties, giving you the chance to find out more about getting involved.

All levels of skill and fitness are welcomed, with roles ranging from construction, hedgelaying and towpath tidying, to joining our boat crew or manning the Canal Centre at Loxwood.

No experience is necessary and all training is provided.

Chairman Sally Schupke highlighted the many benefits of volunteering with the Trust. She said: “You’ll get a warm welcome from the friendly men and women who volunteer with us, people who come from all walks of life. You’ll also learn new skills, guided by our experienced team, and we’ll ensure you get all the equipment and training you need. 

“On top of this is the knowledge you are leaving a legacy for years to come as more of the canal is restored for the enjoyment of all.”

“We encourage everyone to come and join us for a cuppa at our taster days and find out how you can be part of the success story.”

The taster days are being held from 11am to 1pm on Tuesday 28 January, Wednesday 5 February and Thursday 12 March at the recently restored section at Dunsfold/Alfold.
