We must continue to raise the profile of the Canal, support Fundraising and individual activities eg trip boats. Thus we particularly need help from people with Press and Marketing experience, including liaison with the press skills including writing press releases

We have revamped our web site and are looking for a volunteer to assist with the new site:

•         a Web site manager. The new site is built and maintained from a technical perspective by a third party (backup and updates). We need someone to oversee the day-to-day running of the site, to oversee the addition of new content and generally perform admin tasks to ensure it’s smooth operation. Previous experience of Wordpress would be helpful but not essential.

What skills do I need?

We are looking for people with excellent communication skills and 'Can Do' attitude. 

Volunteering is a very important part of how the Canal is run and maintained, and really makes a difference. Not only that:

- It’s fun

- It’s a great way to meet new people

- You learn new skills

- You feel good giving back to the community

- It’s interesting to learn about the canal, nature and conservation

- It’s a great way to keep fit and active or just to get you out of the house and get some fresh air.
