Harry and Sally will soon be making her way along the Ashby Canal from Nuneaton to Bosworth Marina to be fitted out internally. The design and fabrication alterations have meant that our dayboat has yet to launched, however we are getting close! It is exciting to see our plans coming to reality. The bulk heads have been lined, the plumbing is installed and the inverter final fix electrics are in. Harry and Sally has full central heating for the cooler days!
Good news! We have been awarded a grant towards the fitting out of the proposed cafe’ on the first floor of the facilities building. The ‘LEADER’ grant from Hinckley and Bosworth and North Warwickshire Borough Councils in the Rural Development Programme for England will help with the building of the food preparation and serving areas along with additional facilities. Our disabled lift is already in place.
Ben and Mick have now transported our stockpiled topsoil and levelled and shaped areas of the site ready for planting and seeding. The pathway from the towpath bridge to the facilities building for our boaters and customers is now under construction. The gate will be installed when construction work is completed in that area of the site. Construction of additional car parking spaces and associated drainage close to the facilities building is now under way.
