Friends Of The Marshes (FOTM)

Based at Stonebridge Lock in the Waterside Centre, the FOTM has a good variety of events and today was the boat trip up river towards Ramsay Marsh. The 192 bus goes to the Centre.

Was costly at £19 but you gets what you pays for. That included the de-luxe canal boat with its sparkiling clean toilet, disabled access features, wine galore, a table packed with cosmopolitan platters and as much tea as you want.

It was an ace outing, a six-hour round trip.
