Chesterfield Canal Trust is looking for more volunteers to help crew their trip boats for the summer.

Rod Auton, publicity officer and a trustee, said: “We are now reaching a time when all four of our tripboats will be working flat out.

“In August we will be running trips somewhere every day, often in two or three locations at once.

“This puts great strain upon our crews, many of whom will be on holiday themselves.”

If you would like to help on any boats in Retford, Worksop, Hollingwood or Chesterfield, please email

Rod added: “By all means just come for a day or half a day at first to see whether you will enjoy it.”
