New boats take to canal.

YOUNGSTERS in Rugby will be able to take canal holidays aboard two new boats thanks to a charity.

The Braunston-based London Narrow Boat Project, which loans boats out to schools and youth groups, has moored two new boats at Braunston Marina to mark the charity's 21st anniversary.

Breaks

The pair will replace the charity's old boats, which have been used since the organisation started in 1981.

The full-length 12-berth narrow boats can be booked for breaks on the canal.

Groups must book a skipper or hold the certificate of community boat management.

Prices, which include a skipper, range from pounds 290 for a weekend off-peak to pounds 985 for a week in the summer.

Anyone who would like to book the boats should contact the charity on 0870 240 6724.
