The Naming Ceremony for the new Society trip boat John Pinkerton II will take place on Sunday 2nd June at 11.00am at Colt Hill Wharf, Odiham. We are delighted that our guest of honour will be Sally Taylor of the BBC South Today news programme. Members are invited to come and watch and join in the fun! There will be other attractions set up on the day. We will require a few volunteers to help us on the day to set up, marshall, and clear away. If you are able to help please let me, Dick King, know at Please note there will be very limited parking at the wharf – please share cars if possible, and park away from the site and walk down.

The first public trip on the new boat is expected to take place in the afternoon of Sunday 2nd June following the naming ceremony, but please book well in advance as spaces will be limited. All bookings should be made through David Horwood on 01256 765889 or at  Dick King, Chairman, John Pinkerton Canal Cruises
