You don’t have to come to us to take benefit from our educational work.

We can come to you.

To schools – our staff or volunteers can give a talk, and answer questions, on various aspects of the heritage, and of the technology, of the waterways and the craft and people using them.

We will ask for a fee for this service, to cover costs and contribute to the work of the Trust. The fee will depend on your requirements.

To community groups – we give talks to the University of the Third Age (U3A), WI and other groups in the area. We have several times given a talk in Rickmansworth (we can arrange a venue if needed), followed by a visit to the Roger to see at first hand a historic canal boat, and then gone on to take a trip in either Roger or the Pride of Batchworth.  

We ask for a suitable donation to the Trust’s funds, and suggest about £50 for an hour’s talk.

If the boat is to be used, our charter rates apply.

Contact us to discuss your requirements.
