£15,000 needed for new lift to be fitted
to New Horizons!

In order to access the lounge area on the boat less mobile passengers or those in wheelchairs have the use of a scissor lift which lowers them to lounge level in comfort and safety.
The current lift is nearing the end of life stage after 35 years service and needs to be replaced.
The cost of replacement is £15,000 and it will be appreciated that as this sum will make a large hole in our reserves we are appealing for financial support.
Would you please help us raise this amount as any breakdown in the current operation would be disastrous to our client group users.
For more detail and or explanation please contact James Dunlop, Chairman.

All gifts will be gratefully received and acknowledged.

Xmas cracker events are on Dec 2nd and 3rd.Tombola prizes needed please.

Still no news on CRTs redevelopment plans for the wharf.
