Want to go recycling by narrowboat? Three times a month the Wooden Canal Boat Society takes boats on a trip down the canal, then we collect used and saleable items from local residents. The items collected are sold in our charity shop and the funds keep the charity going. The next trip is on Sunday, 4th August 2013, leaving Portland Basin in Ashton under Lyne at about 9.30am. Bring a packed lunch.
After that there are trips on Monday 5th August and Tuesday 6th August – both leaving at 6pm. We’re usually back in Ashton by 9pm. These are nice trips, very enjoyable and there’s good company. If you’re interested but need more information contact Ashton Boatman, Chris Leah on 079 319 53037.
