Sat Sep 7th THE DANNY STEAMSHIP EXPERIENCE

River Cruise aboard the Danny Steamship along the River Weaver in Cheshire.
Three and Half hour cruise from The Anderton Boat Lift to Sutton Weaver
Leaving Anderton Boat Lift at 12.00 noon and arriving at Sutton Weaver at 15.30.
The coach will bring us back to spend some time at the visitor centre / cafe / pub at the Anderton Boat lift before our journey home.

Cruise cost is £35.00 per person and then approximately £10.00 for coach.

Although lunch is not served on board they allow passengers to take their own picnics which could be lovely. Otherwise I am informed there is a restaurant / cafe at the Anderton Boat Lift where we could have something to eat.

I have booked 33 places on this trip and already have 40 people interested so please let me know as soon as possible if you would like to be added to the list.
