What's in it for you?
It's a great way to meet other local volunteers and the Trust's Volunteer team, learn new practical skills, hear about other volunteer opportunities or just spend a few hours outdoors improving your local waterway environment.
This is the chance to have a positive impact on your local waterway, play a leading role in recovering vulnerable species, and have the opportunity to enthuse others to do the same. It is a fact that being by the water makes you happier and healthier, this role allows you to both increase your own wellbeing as well as encouraging others to improve theirs.
