An invitation from the Hazel Project

Hello, and seasons greetings.

I’m writing to invite you and your colleagues for a brew and a look round on Hazel, our beautifully restored narrowboat. She’s been accessibly fitted out with the aid of Big Lottery to work as a wellbeing boat, offering respite and adventures for people living with poor mental health. But thats not all she can do! she can be a space for workshops, meetings, creative inspiration…We are very keen to find innovative ways for her to work for the whole community and collaborate with organisations or individuals who can make use of her as a unique – and mobile –  resource. We can bring her anywhere theres a working canal – so Greater Manchester, Cheshire, and up into the Pennines along the Huddersfeild Narrow are all possibilities.

You dont have to have a doctors note to be able to benefit from some time on the canal either – Hazel is availiable for private hire for work socials, family or friends days out, or just some peace and quiet for one or two people. She also has berths to sleep overnight for a longer adventure. if you really get into boating, then there are opprtunities to volunteer aswell and learn how to narrowboat the old fashioned way 🙂

So if any of that sounds like it could be useful to you, either personally or professionally, do come down and have a no pressure look round. And if you can’t make either open day, Claire and I may be able to meet you there another time – just get in touch.
