Sign up for our boat trip

You may recall the Winter Draw last December? Thanks to a donation from the winner of the 2021 Winter Draw, we are organising a boat trip. Due to his generosity, we can offer the trip free of charge.

So the good ship Rivertime will be setting sail on Wednesday 13 April at 2pm from Henley and can accommodate up to 12 members. The boat is fully accessible and can accommodate manual and electric wheelchairs (as long as they don’t exceed a width of 760mm and motorised chairs can be switched to manual operation during boarding and disembarkation) but no mobility scooters due to width. 

You could spot Mallards, Great Crested Grebes, Swans with their cygnets, Canadian, Egyptian and Graylag Geese, Moorhens, Coots, Tufty ducks, Herons, Commorants and if you are very lucky, the bright blue flash of a Kingfisher. No whales or sharks have been spotted….yet!

As we have limited numbers and we expect it to be popular we will be holding a ballot between Monday 21 March and Wednesday 30 March. If more than 12 people express their interest, people will be randomly selected. Please let us know if you would like to bring someone with you. If you require a wheelchair you will be required to bring someone to support you.

If you want to go please click here to let us know

Alternatively, please let us know at the Centre by calling 0118 901 6000, emailing ms@bmstc.org or speaking to someone on reception.

No places will be guaranteed until we have confirmed your place on Thursday 31 March.
