Since January two new locations – St Ives and Houghton Locks – have joined the programme. The lock volunteering is kindly supported by Jones Boatyard at St Ives and the National Trust Houghton Mill by providing volunteer welfare facilities.
In February the recruitment programme commenced with 16 new recruits for St Ives and Houghton. (Eight new volunteers for Denver and two for Northampton have also been recruited.)
All the new recruits have completed their classroom training and are now undertaking their ‘on site’ training.
