Town Bridge, Northwich
We are currently looking to recruit a small team of volunteers to assist us in a routine bridge inspection at Town Bridge in Northwich on Sunday 3rd November. Our bridge inspection is a great opportunity for volunteers to support the team in maintaining the bridge by removing any dirt and debris from beneath the bridge alongside the Canal & River Trust team. Other responsibilities include engaging with the general public as the public face of Canal & River Trust during the bridge closure to address any queries and provide general information. The road running over the bridge will be closed for the day, so there will be no roadside working. This particular opportunity would be ideal for those with an interest in bridge engineering.
This is a one off event and an opportunity to meet local people, learn new skills and make a difference in your local area.
This role will suit people who have a friendly and enthusiastic manner and are happy to engage with the general public. This role may be physically demanding, so being psychically able to undertake manual work (clearing litter and debris) is essential. Out of pocket travel expenses can be claimed
