Last week Hazel enjoyed a trip along the Peak Forest canal to Marple for their Locks Festival. It was a great outing and another wonderful opportunity for some of the potential crew trainees to find out about the work involved – especially as her final destination was at lock number 12 !!! Lots of hard work and fun involved.
Here are two photos of the journey, one across the Marple Aquaduct and a lovely one showing her newly painted name.
The festival stalls were in the park next to the canal and the Wooden Canal Boat Society had a stall there promoting the Society, selling canal art and donated items, and running a Mini-Toy tombola. Anne Riley’s canal art was as popular as ever, especially her new range of mugs.
At the boat there was a constant queue of people eager to look inside Hazel.
The volunteers on hand had a really busy, successful day; we couldn’t have done it without Team Hazel – many of whom are shown here with Anne-Louise Black leading in red. Thanks to everyone involved in the trip and on the day.
