Volunteers take to Zoom

Published: Friday, 05 March 2021

VOLUNTEERS of the Wey & Arun Trust have taken to Zoom online to entertain during lockdown.

While most of the Wey & Arun Canal Trust volunteers have been on a break during lockdown, one group is seeing demand for their services increase.

Online presentations

The talks team have been giving online presentations throughout the pandemic as groups and clubs have turned to virtual meetings instead of face to face gatherings.

Zoom technology means they can broadcast their presentations across the UK and the team have been entertaining clubs and groups as well as other canal trusts as a result.

History and restoration

Talks include the history of the canal and its restoration, as well as the vision for its future, and can include a question and answer session.

Anyone wanting to request a speaker for a club or group can go to the Trust’s website:
