Marple New Horizons New Horizon Narrow Boat

The New Horizons Trust, which operates the New Horizons canal boat, is looking for volunteers on Friday December 7 when Father Christmas will take a magical lit evening boat ride from the New Horizons mooring to the Marple Social and Forces Club where he will meet as many children as possible.

Due to Health & Safety requirements, the New Horizons Trust need volunteers to marshall along the canal bank. Without volunteers, the event may not be possible.

If you could spare some time to help with this event, please contact Joan Sheridan via email at:

This is a free event for the people of Marple and needs volunteers to enable it to go ahead.

The canal boat has been operating for over 30 years and during that time has carried around 50,000 passengers. The boat is specially designed to assist disabled people and those with limited mobility. It is fully accessible for wheelchair access.
