Open days will also be held one weekend a month, with the final weekend on September 27 and 28. Next month there will be three open days on Saturday April 19, Sunday April 20 and Easter Monday, April 21.

Refreshments will be available in the café and the model garden railway will also be open.

The charity provides trips on the waterways particularly for special needs groups, socially disadvantaged groups and those with health and mobility problems. It runs four boats, two of which have full wheelchair accessibility.
