I’m sure many of you will remember the brilliant talk given by Hamed Qawasmeh about the work of HIRN (https://friendsofhirn.wordpress.com).
Well, an enterprising local supporter, who owns a narrow boat, is running trips on the canal in order to raise funds for HIRN: you can either just sit and watch the world go by, or help with the locks and a bit of steering.
The price is £45 per head, which includes a vegetarian lunch and a cream tea, with money paid directly to HIRN (through the Amos Trust link). A party of four of us experienced the boat and the hospitality a couple of weeks ago, and I can honestly say it was a wonderful day out. They can accommodate up to six in the group.

Note: If the weather is too bad then the trip will be postponed to a mutually agreed date. Also, they need people to come as a single group: the logistics of trying to coordinate two or three different couples is hard, especially if there is a delay, and anyway it’s more fun if people know each other!
