What's involved?

Are you interested in joining our established group of education volunteers in the beautiful city of Bath? The group have already worked with a number of schools leading workshops in the classroom and walks along the towpath to introduce the children to the fascinating history of this part of the Kennet & Avon Canal. The group are expanding to work with schools close to Bradford on Avon and also provide activities for families at events. We are looking for volunteers who love working with children and enjoy being outdoors.
