Our new dayboat 'Juniper' has been painted with our logo to bring her into our fleet. If you are looking for a taster to see what narrowboats are like to spend the day on she is the perfect way to start. At 36 feet long she is easy to handle and can accommodate up to 10 adults.

We were lucky enough to experience the end of a truly marathon kayak by a father and son from the lake district to Odiham which took 15 days to complete. I believe that they were raising money for a cancer charity. If we can find out more accurate information we will post it up on our site.
Well done to George and Mark who completed a 20 mile kayak on Saturday. The also had to contend with temperatures approaching 30 degrees! Mark is a student at Merristwood and raised money for the Save the Rhino charity who are linked with the Shamwari Nature Reserve in South Africa.
