New Horizons' News
Here's the latest news from New Horizons.
Santa rides New Horizons to the Forces Club.
Despite the weeks awful weather and horrendous conditions Peter, and not forgetting his little helpers, again managed to outdo himself with yet another beautifully decorated boat. Cruising up the Macclesfield Canal and into the Marina New Horizons and Santa braved the elements to bring some Christmas Cheer to all those gathered at the Forces Club. Some lovely singing, a chance to catch up with old friends and an opportunity to meet Santa made for a grand evening for everyone. We look forward to seeing you again next Christmas.

Supporter of the boat and keen runner Sue Slater came down to the boatyard on August 29th along with her husband to present a cheque to us, the proceeds from her sponsored running of three marathons. Receiving the cheque, for an amazing £1059-00, on behalf of the trust were James, Peter, Joan and David, they in return presented Sue with a bouquet and champagne as a token of thanks for her efforts in supporting us.
