We are now reaching a time when all four of our tripboats will be working flat out. In August we will be running trips somewhere every day, often in two or three locations at once. This puts great strain upon our crews, many of whom will be on holiday themselves.
If you would like to help on any of our boats, in Retford, Worksop, Hollingwood or Chesterfield, please reply to this email. By all means just come for a day or half day to see whether you will enjoy it.
John Varley is running Monday evening Lock Keeper’s Table Cruises, Wednesday evening special cruises, Ice Cream Cruises plus 6-hour cruises on 13th and 30th July.
Madeline is running Afternoon Cream Tea Cruises on Wednesdays until 20th July.
Hugh Henshall is running trips at Shireoaks Gala on 2nd July and Shireoaks to Turnerwood return Cruises on 16th July.
Seth Ellis is doing Pirate trips in Retford on 10th and 31st July.
