Scouts are shipshape

We were delighted to be able to help a group of Scout leaders to obtain their Royal Yachting Association Inland Waterways Helmsman's Certificates (IWHC) last weekend.

When Darian Charlesworth (2nd from right) and his wife came on the Christmas blow-out trip on the Hugh Henshall, things fell in to place. Beauchief Baptist Scout group had been looking for somewhere local to do a IWHC course and they they were delighted to find that the Hugh Henshall was a registered training centre able to deliver the course. It was important that the three leaders gained the certificate before taking a group of Scouts on a trip on their boat later this year and we were only too happy to help.

Pictured left to right are David Morris (CCT Trustee and RYA Instructor), Andrew Plummer, Darian Charlesworth and John Putland.
