Spey And, is there anything you don’t like? Some people will not listen, they think: “I’ve been doing it (wrong) this way for many, many years, why should you know better, you’re just a volunteer?” Well, I’ve been doing the Rochdale locks for 50-odd years now and I’m still listening and learning. I think some people could do with picking up a few tips, it would probably make their boating easier and more enjoyable.
Why do you feel it’s important to volunteer?
