Please consider supporting the Navigation by volunteering your time.  Essex Waterways Ltd is a non-profit making organisation, and any surplus funds are reinvested in the Navigation.  It would not be possible to maintain the Navigation without our loyal band of volunteers who support the small staff team.  We need help with skippering and crewing our trip boats, maintenance at each of our lock sites, towpath maintenance and litter clearance, and help manning the office during busy summer periods.  We would also be grateful for help with maintenance of our work boats and trip boats and a wide range of other machinery, with painting waterway structures, vegetation control and a wide range of other jobs.  Please contact the office, and we would be pleased to discuss what tasks on the Navigation you might enjoy.
