Swindon Phoenix Rotary Barge Trip

Thank you to the Swindon Phoenix Rotary Club that took six of our young adults out on a barge trip on Friday 15 May. The group were treated to a day out on the Rebecca barge, travelling from Great Bedwyn. The boys were able to experience opening the locks and driving the boat with support from the crew.

Andrew said, “I loved the barge, it was fun! I had to push the locks to let the boat in, wait for the water to go up and then push the next one to let it out. We had to use the wind up key to help open the gates. I got to spend the day with all friends. We sat at the front of the boat sometimes and then I got to drive”.

Everyone had such an amazing time and we have some great photos from the day. Take a look in the gallery. http://www.swindondownsgroup.org.uk/gallery/
