River Thames boat project is back on the river!

We are delighted to be back on the river! We enjoyed 4 days of ‘School on the River’ with Latchmere School over the last 2 weeks onboard Thames Venturer at Teddington Lock. They were our first environmental education days on the boat since March. It was so good to see the children enjoying time on the river, the sunshine and the usual RTBP activities and warm welcome. We made some changes to be COVID-19 secure, bringing all the activities on deck and shoreside, staff and volunteers wear visors and follow social distancing requirements, hand sanitising takes place regularly. Thank you Latchmere School for being our first groups back onboard!

We’re looking forward to welcoming more schools onboard over the next few weeks and bringing environmental education to life on the river once more.

We are also starting to do some cruises from early October. We have reduced passenger numbers to 6, including carers, in order to comply with social distancing requirements. October and November are great months for enjoying some special time on the river.
