Boat scheme for disabled children launches in Bisham

Disabled children can try their hand at water sports thanks to a new venture launched at Bisham Abbey.

The Boatability scheme gives youngsters the chance to try dingy sailing, bell boating, raft building and open top kayaking.

The Lord Lieutenant of Berkshire the Hon Mary Bayliss marked the start of the scheme on Wednesday, April 23 by hoisting the official Boatability flag, which is by the river at the sports centre in Marlow Road.

Boatability is a joint initiative between Bisham Abbey and The Rivertime Boat Trust, a charity that operate boat trips for disabled children along the Thames.

Two new bell boats, a safety boat and wheelie boat have been purchased for the sessions.

The Rt Hon Mary Bayliss said “This new venture at Bisham Abbey will greatly expand the opportunities for many more people."
