A day on the canal for the Tewkesbury Men’s Group

The Willow Trust provide a wonderful opportunity for a day on one of their boats travelling up and  down the Gloucester Canal.  On a beautiful late September day,  10 members of Tewkesbury Men’s group travelled to Saul Junction for a day lazing on a river boat – or should that be a canal boat. The boats are fully equipped with a wide range of facilities for people with disabilities, and you even get a chance to drive it – steering can be a bit tricky,  zig zaging  across the river is not recommended!  The hosts on board provide teas/coffees/ squash during the trip and we disembarked ( just like they do on the cruise  liners ) for our lunch, returning back to Saul by 3pm.

It was a fabulous day out. Everyone enjoyed it so much we’ll be planning another trip next year.
