Mayors Annual Visit
On the 28th of September the Mayor of Stockport Cllr Linda Holt and her consort Ken Holt joined the Skipper, volunteers and trustees of Stockport Canal Boat Trust for a morning cruise on the Macclesfield Canal. The Trust was a Mayor's charity in the time of Gordon Bayley MBE and the boat has cruised every summer since 1981, taking disabled passengers on a slow cruise through the lovely Marple scenery.
Cllr Holt had the opportunity to talk to volunteers from the charity who not only man the boat but ensure that the shop is fully stocked and help at the various events the boat attends. She was also able to experience steering the boat and at the end of the trip received a certificate to demonstrate she had been able to do this. The New Horizons team were very pleased that the Mayor had been able to accept the invitation and had enjoyed her time on the Canal.
