5th September Linking People Afloat Cruise
A few times a year we offer special Linking People Afloat Cruise which is a day cruise for individuals. These cruises are for those not supported or belonging to a group, to enable them to come by themselves or with a carer or companion. The day includes a lunch in the saloon, which affords a wonderful opportunity for social exchanges with fellow passengers and crew.
If you are an older person, or a person of any age with a disability, mobility or mental health issue including: ex-servicemen, dementia, stroke survivors; vision impaired, hearing impaired, MS, Parkinson’s, brain injury, special needs children, children with cancer etc. This cruise would suit you.
Cruises are for a total of 12 passengers (including carers or companions), on our specially adapted barge Thames Venturer, which is operated by a Professional Skipper and up to 4 trained volunteer crew members.
The environment is supportive, protective and relaxing. The crew will make sure you have a very memorable day and take care of you throughout. The boat is warm and stable, with a wheelchair accessible gangway, lift and toilets. On board, clients have a degree of mobility and camaraderie rarely found in other leisure activities. Blankets and binoculars available. Sun canopy for hot weather and enclosed viewing space for slightly cooler days.
Price: £36 per person, including morning and afternoon tea/coffee and lunch.
On the 5th September, the boat, Thames Venturer will depart at 10am from The Barge Dock, Down Hall Road, Kingston KT1 1PS and return at 4-4.30pm.
