The RTBP office will be closed from the end of the day on Thursday 16th December for 2 weeks for the Christmas holidays. Kate, Pippa, Hannah and Gunnar will be back at work from Tuesday 4th January 2022.
We wish everyone a happy Christmas and look forward to more special time on the river in 2022!

Pippa’s friend has organised a Green Saturday sale (rather than a Black Friday one).
Idea: table top sale of good quality items including homeware, toys, mistaken purchases PLUS retro, vintage, repurposed, upcycled and homemade creations.
20% of all money taken goes to charity. Pippa has a table and her chosen charity is the River Thames Boat Project. It would be great if you could come along and support this local, environmental event.

Time: 10am – 12 noon
Venue: United Reform Church Hall, 35 Hampton Hill High Street, TW12 1NB
