From the Chair 

Hello everyone

Welcome to our latest quarterly e-newsletter keeping you up-to-date with news, events and activities from the team at LNBP Community Boating at Braunston.

It has been a busy few months for us as we start the new boating season and it is only set to get busier with I am pleased to say our calendar heavily booked right through until when we 'close' for the year in early November.

What is most encouraging is that we have already taken numerous bookings for 2020 from both existing client groups and also new ones. This is great to see and reflects that what we offer to community groups and organisations is still very much in demand. 

In addition to the prospect of welcoming the arrival of community groups and organisations for midweek or weekend trips with us, we are also anticipating one of our biggest undertakings of the year - the Crick Boat Show at Crick Marina in Northamptonshire. As the official Charity Partner of the Show, we will once again be running the Trip Boats - all four of them - up and down the Leicester Line of the Grand Union Canal over the course of the weekend (Saturday 25th to Monday 27th May).

If you are planning on heading to Crick over the Whitsun bank holiday weekend, please do pop by and say hello, and find out more about us. Our team will be on hand to answer any questions and show you around one of our boats - Guinevere - which will at the Show. 

So we hope to see you there, or in the coming months if you are already booked to join us for a weekend or longer group trip. 

In the meantime, we hope the articles below are of interest. Remember you can keep up-to-date with our news via our website here, or via social media on Facebook here and Twitter (@LNBP_Braunston) here.

If you have any comments or would like further information about making a booking for your community group, organisation or school for 2020, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us – our contact details are here.

Best wishes,

Peter Page
