A fantastic opportunity to join our exciting lock keeping project and experience the 'canal magic' for yourself.

Go Forth and Clyde volunteers assist with every boat movement between these locks 7 days per week during the lock keeping season, so there is ample opportunity to get involved.
Volunteers can use their own bicycles to travel between the locks, and Go Forth and Clyde also provides bicycles for volunteers to use whilst on lock keeping duty. The required tools, life jackets and hi-vis clothing will also be provided.

Community alarms support many older and more vulnerable people in Moray to continue living as independently as possible in their own homes. At the press of a button they can quickly raise an alert if they need assistance.
There are a number of people in our communities who unfortunately have no family or friends living close by who are able to act as their alarm responder and go check on them when an alarm is activated to provide initial assistance.
We are currently experiencing a greater demand for volunteer alarm responders across Moray, especially in the Forres, Elgin, Buckie and Dufftown areas for people who do not have close family, friends are neighbours for this type of support. This volunteer service is very much about remaining calm and providing reassurance.
If you would like to know more about what is entailed please contact the Volunteer Development Team email volunteering.CC@moray.gov.uk.

In the summer months, the volunteer focus is with their beautiful Community & Children's garden - a 1-acre space to grow and harvest your own vegetables. Coming autumn and winter, volunteers look to the woodlands to manage invasive species, plant trees and make insect habitats.
