On Board Swingbridge 2 With Surrey Care Trust

An instructive and productive day with Rita, Probation Service, and four offenders undertaking their hours of service in the community – all courtesy of Caz, Adult Learning Manager at SCT, and our second skipper, Alan, whose exceptional impact over many hours each week, is all as a volunteer. We painted one side of a long footbridge, and prepared the other side for painting next week, as well as learning about handling boats, dealing with locks (the watery variety!) and keeping the rivers and canal systems efficient and accessible. The chance to talk informally with everyone involved, emphasised the impact this opportunity is having on many lives.
