Afternoon All, There is a great opportunity to get involved with the regeneration of the waterway's within the Olympic Park. Have a look at this following statement and decide if you would like to be involved as a volunteer for this great initiative.
There is an exciting opportunity for you to join a volunteer group ‘Friends of Bow Back Rivers’. There will be roles including supporting and running events, supporting the schools programme, social media promotion, heritage learning and promotion and being a representative for activities or interest in the waterways.
The restoration (to be completed in Spring 2017) will re-open the waterways in Queen Elizabeth Olympic park and create plenty of new opportunities for boaters and visitors. We’re asking you to be part of a new friends group who will champion the newly restored Carpenters Road Lock and wider Bow Back rivers.
The Canal & River Trust, in partnership with Our Parklife will offer you training in social media, how to create a constitution and a chance to learn about the heritage of the area, wider influence of the waterways and Carpenters Road Lock. As part of the friends group, you will have also a chance to see behind the scenes of the most existing construction programmes in London, and a great insight into Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. The group will also sit under the ‘Park Panel’ (a forum of local Park stakeholders and businesses), which will offer further training, development and networking opportunities, whilst allowing the group to act as a voice for the waterways in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
No experience in necessary, but a commitment of 2-3 hours a week over the next 6 months would be expected. Please contact Joanna Steele at Joanna.firstname.lastname@example.org by 27th January 2017, and we will reply by 30th January 2017.
Please note that the first induction dates will be 12th February 11am-12:30,or Monday 13th Feb,18:30-20:00, depending on your availability. Further details on the induction will be sent in January.
