Back Boating!

Well with so many customers still needing pumpouts we have decide to an extra run this weekend. Today we boated from High Lane to Poyton, back to Marple and through to our mooring at Furness Vale. There were a lot of people very pleased to see us and so many people were appreciative of our efforts over the past few weeks.

Tomorrow we will head into Whaley & Bugsworth, then Back to Marple. On Monday we will head towards Macclesfield & Fools Nook

Our next run on the Macc & Peak Forest will be on 30 th Jan to 1st Feb running 1-way from Fools Nook to Whaley Bridge. We will then operate fortnightly from Whaley Bridge to Whitley Green (Bollington) until mid March (due to stoppage)

On Wed 27th March we will be delivering by road to Sandbach & Anderton areas.

The Big Chill - January 2010

Wow what a start to the New Year. We returned to Alton on Sat 2nd Jan and managed to break ice from High Lane to Marple, then returned to High Lane, but after 12 hours the ice beat us. We then commenced deliveries by road, (which was not without its problems). But using our van, a friend Landrover and out trusty wheelbarrow & sack truck we have managed to deliver many hundreds of bags of coal and thousands of litres of diesel to keep all our customers warm and cosy.

A big thank you to all those people who have mucked in to help us out over the past couple of weeks, from keeping an eye on our boats to driving us to isoloted places as well of course the numerous cuppas that have kept us going.

Hopefully the thaw that is well underway will continue and we can be boating again in the next few days.
