Canal & River Trust are seeking to expand our operation of private boats passing through Standedge Tunnel. To enable this we would like to talk to people who would be interested in becoming a boat chaperone. These are volunteers who will travel with the private boats as they pass through the tunnel.
Full training, such as helsman, Fiirst Aid etc will be given and the initial training will require more training than a usual volunteer role. We would welcome interest from volunteers wishing to help us with this. For initial enquiries and discussion please contact Steve O’Sullivan, Volunteer Development Coordinator for Manchester and Pennine waterways. Please email Steve.Osullivan@canalrivertrust.org.uk. Thank you.
Develop personal experience with level of training required. Be part of a professional team offering an important service to the customer. Develop local heritage knowledge.
