Waterways Experiences

An on line talk by Richard Tregoning

At our Zoom meeting on 6th May Richard Tregoning gave us a very informative talk about the work of the Hemel Hempstead charity Waterways Experirnces.  We learned of the work that they did with three canal boats to give experirnces to disabled and disadvantaged people an experiece on the Grand Union Canal and of the benefits that many got from being able to participatev and handle the boats and the locks.  All the work of the charity is carried out by unpaid volunteers and they rely on gifts from the public, grants and income received by taking commercial bookings to keep the charity afloat.
