 Situations Vacant

 We are looking for assistance in certain areas to enable us to move forward with the canal restoration. Please consider the following and please do step forward if you can help. These aren’t full time roles, just a few hours a week or even a month will make a difference:
 
Display posters – we have had a generous donation to redesign our branch display posters; do you have a flair for such things or are already a graphic designer; you might also be able to help with new interpretation boards;
Branch fundraiser – although we have done very well from Marsha Miles the Trust fundraiser, there is always a need for local volunteers to fill in forms that are needed to bid for funds available locally; we can’t carry on restoration or construction work without funds, so if you are able to fill in online forms with information supplied to you, please do consider helping here; 
Branch researcher – short-term help required to determine what materials our Dry Dock and Carpenters Workshop were made from, it’s not as obvious as you think!;
Mechanics – we have been donated a petrol driven golf type buggy (would have preferred electric but beggars can’t be choosers) it needs a good service and there is at least one small electric component missing; We also require someone to help maintain and service our various equipment e.g. brush cutters, hedge trimmers, small tractor, quad bike, dumpers, diggers etc
Risk Assessments and Method Statements (RAMS) – do you have experience in such areas? would you be happy to help other volunteers in
producing these important documents needed to ensure that our restoration/construction can carry on?

If you can offer any time at all to help in these areas please do get in touch.

  All this work of course relies on our volunteers but as we look to open up new stretches we really do need to increase our numbers. We carry out work during the week but also at weekends.
