Even though the Trust is largely run by volunteers we strive to ensure we meet high standards of service. We welcome comments, some of which are shown below:

  • I just wanted to write and say thank you so much for the opportunity to bring my students on the Ethel Barge on Thursday 13th June 2013. We all had a really good day and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

  • We had a great outing last Sunday even though the weather was not kind to us. We complement you on this facility and assure that we shall 'spread the word'. The crew was excellent, they made us very welcome and included us in all that they did. It was fun, it was comfortable and it was instructive. Again thank you very much.

  • .... thankyou for making our outing....a very enjoyable occasion. The clients throughly enjoyed themselves and so did all the staff. We do go on many trips but it is a long time since we have had the help and genuine compassion shown and interaction that you had towards the clients we will certainly be seeing you again in the near future.
