Volunteer Training

Could you be a Volunteer Canal Boatman in South Wales?

The Monmouthshire, Brecon and Abergavenny Canals Trust and The Islwyn Canal Association both ply a trip boat on the Monmouth and Brecon Canal.
Also in Neath, volunteers will be trained to operate the Thomas Dadford on the Neath Canal in Neath & Port Talbot.

Canal Trusts are looking for volunteers to train to be helmsmen and women. If you are reasonably fit and have a couple of days a year spare, why not join us?
