Summer outing 20th August Canal Trip 9-5:30

Glebe Canal Cruises
The boats will accommodate 10/12 persons and all feature a cabin with galley and toilet compartment. In the galley there is a sink with running water, a two-ring gas hob, crockery, cutlery, teapot, saucepan and washing up materials. Forward of the cabin is a covered open air deck which can be enclosed by side screens should the weather turn unpleasant.
These boats are designed to be easy to operate even for the complete novice. They are relatively short in narrow boat terms (approx 30ft) and are simply steered by tiller from the stern. They are powered by quiet modern diesel engines with a forward and reverse gearbox operated by one easy to use lever. We supply all the fuel and gas that you will need and plenty of water for your cruise.

Festival Training Day 2nd Sept 2013

Get ready for the Festival Training Day. Many jobs have to be filled to ensure a successful day out for the Guild.

Many of you volunteered at the Alban Supper, but still more people are required.

We still need a car Shuttle service for about 6-10 people.

The Training Evening has been confirmed at St Saviours Church St Albans, on Monday 2nd Sept at 7:30pm. Here you will be trained and shown how to register the visitors, given the full plan for the day, so you can tell everyone what is happening, and that you can direct people to where they need to be.

We are still very short of the necessary volunteers so we will need to rope in some other people to help us.
