Closing Date

Time Commitment
Quarterly board meetings

On behalf of The Wilts & Berks Canal Trust we are delighted to be recruiting four Trustee roles including the key position of Chair of Trustees.

The Wilts & Berks Canal Trust are particularly interested in individuals with could bring skills in any of the following areas:

  • Public advocacy and PR expertise
  • Legal expertise
  • Canals expertise
  • Events expertise

The Trust has come a very long way in the 44 years since its inauguration as an Amenity Group and has grown from strength to strength through the generous input of countless numbers of volunteers working to protect, conserve and improve the route of the waterway for the benefit of local communities and the environment.

Since 2001 the Wilts & Berks Canal Trust has been growing and developing into a heritage restoration body, planning and managing the most complex and largest waterway restoration project in the UK. Along the way, we have organised river and canal festivals, purchased both a pub and more land, and continued restoration both through our loyal volunteers and by using major contractors.

Their aim is to create a sustainable, accessible and desirable destination for people and wildlife by restoring the historic Wilts & Berks Canal as a blue and green corridor through the region, adding economic, lifestyle and biodiversity value as the canal winds its way through communities and landscapes. The projects will create a regional treasure to be cherished by all.
