A day out on the canal


Members of Gipping Valley Rotary Club, plus partners and guests, enjoyed a day out on the Grand Union Canal in May 2009.


A party of 35 people travelled by coach to Cosgrove, near Milton Keynes, to board the MV Elizabeth of Glamis, a restored canal longboat, for the two-hour trip along the canal to the historic village of Stoke Bruerne, in Northamptonshire.


There, after a leisurely lunch, there was time to visit the National Waterways Board canal museum, before returning by boat to Cosgrove.


Despite the changeable weather, the trip was voted a great success by all who went on it.
