It has been a delayed and frustrating start to the new boating season for LNBP Community Boating and their 40th anniversary year.
Under normal circumstances, LNBP Community Boating would be up and running their two narrow boats by now from their moorings at the heart of the canal network at Braunston in Northamptonshire. The non-profit charity provide weekend and midweek breaks for community groups and organisations to explore the delights of our inland waterways here in central England.
But as we all know, these are not normal times and the latest lockdown restrictions have meant they have been unable to open their doors and cruise the Oxford and Grand Union Canals just yet.
But there is perhaps light at the end of the tunnel. Monday's easing of restrictions by HM Government means they can at least offer an alternative service by way of self-steer short breaks hires by families and their support bubble. There is hope that normal service by being able to welcome organised groups back aboard can resume fully from June.
In preparation for this, there has been a lot going on behind the scenes recently and over the last few months with the charity. And in addition to my regular social media work and other copywriting activities for them, once again I have compiled their latest e-newsletter which is now available to view online.
