The Kennet & Avon Canal Trust is seeking additional volunteers to help crew and run its trip boat “Jubilee”, which operates from Brassknocker Basin, located between Claverton and Limpley Stoke, just off the A36, East of Bath. The boat does regular public trips on Sundays (12.00 & 14.30) and on Bank Holidays (12.00 & 14.30), with additional trips on Tuesdays (14.30) in July and August. The boat is also available for charter trips and undertakes many trips for schools.
The K & A Canal Trust operates 4 such boats, the others operating from Bradford-on-Avon, Devizes and Hungerford. The boats are all run by volunteer Trust members, acting in a range of roles -- as boat skippers, boat and booking managers, helmspersons (steerers), bow person (front lookout) boat crew, bar attendants, etc. Full training is provided by the Trust.
The K & A Canal Trust invites anyone who is interesting in helping to come and find out more by experiencing a free trip on Jubilee on Saturday 8th May, leaving Brassknocker Basin at 2.30 (14.30).
