volunteers are needed by a national
charity to help look after the borough’s canals and rivers.

To meet the growing demand for people looking to spend time helping to care for its waterways in Sefton, the Trust is expanding the number and range of volun – teering roles that if offers.

This includes roles such as lock keepers, towpath rangers, education volunteers and towpath taskforce members.

A spokesman for the trust said “we enter a new year, and a new decade, we are delighted that so many people want to support the Canal & River Trust and make a difference to their local community.

“On the waterways, community spirit is very much alive and well, with our canals and river navigations at the heart of such a diverse variety of villages, towns and cities across the North West.

“With so many ways to get involved, 2020 can be a year when more people take positive action for their local canal, for their community, and – because we know that volunteering and spending time outdoors, by water, is good for wellbeing – for themselves.”
