Venetian Waterways and Boating Lake

How can I get involved in maintaining The Waterways?

Between summer 2018 and summer 2019, volunteers and trainees worked alongside professionals to faithfully reinstate the original and beautiful themed flower beds, and repair the rusticated thatched shelters that contribute much to the special character of the attraction. The surviving carved wooden animal heads from the historic boats will be incorporated into the restoration scheme in some way with the help of the community.

There continues to be a number of volunteering opportunities and if you would like to apply to become a volunteer at The Waterways you can do so by getting in contact with the operator, who have taken responsibility for managing the ongoing volunteer scheme. All the details of what you will need and how to sign up are available on The Waterways (opens new window) website. 

Please note that by signing up to volunteer (from January 2020) your contact information will be used by Great Yarmouth Borough Council, the official operator who jointly run the volunteering programme. You can remove your consent for your information to be shared at any time by contacting
