Rickmansworth Waterways Trust – Suspension of Operations updated 24th March 2020.

The Trustees of the Rickmansworth Waterways Trust have decided to suspend all operations until further notice. Specifically: -

  • The Lock Centre will only be open between 10 am - 12 noon (Mon - Sat) for the dispersal of boaters mail only. This is an essential service for a vulnerable group of people who otherwise would not be able to receive letters.
  • Learning at the Lock and all other education work in the Education Centre will be suspended.
  • All external bookings in the Education Centre are cancelled.
  • The Charter operation and ferry boat trip service is suspended.
  • The Rickmansworth Festival is cancelled for 2020.

The Trustees have taken this decision based on the latest instructions from the Government.

We will keep you all updated as we pass through this difficult time and please be assured that the Trust is in a strong position and we will resume operations as soon as we are advised it is safe to do so.

The Trustees would like to thank ALL of our wondeful volunteers who give so much of their time and dedication to the Trust.
