THE Wey and Arun Canal Trust is appealing for more volunteer boat crews to help meet the growing demand for cruises, a key part of funding the restoration of the canal.

“We need people to fill a variety of roles – you could even become a skipper and we can help you get a boat master’s licence to achieve this, but we are especially in need 
of crew and you will receive full training,” said boat operations manager, Rosie Sugar.

Volunteers need to be over 16 years and moderately fit to operate the locks and 
work the boats.

“There are also cabin crew vacancies which involve serving refreshments and selling merchandise on the cruises and for these positions you just need enthusiasm and a friendly disposition,” she explained.

To find out more, contact Rosie Sugar by email on rosiesugar@hotmail.co.uk or by phone on 07900 320757.
