Client Cruise along the Great Ouse

Every summer Over Day Centre staff organise an outing for the Clients, and this year’s event was a 3.5hr riverboat trip along the Great Ouse. Beginning and ending at Hartford Marina, Clients were taken in a covered boat, belonging to the Ladybird Boat Trust, along the lazy waterways around St. Ives. 

At a leisurely pace the boat left the marina at around 11.30am, whilst Clients were served refreshments by Day Centre Staff. All twenty of the Clients were in high spirits – as can be seen from the photographs – and despite a cloudy start to the day the sun made a glorious appearance just as the picnic lunch was served. Everyone agreed that it had been a splendid day, and that they would love to make the trip again!


“The boat ride was lovely. It was something different and the Ladybird crew were very friendly. 
Everybody was very chatty.”
Mrs. J. Hill, Over 

“ A very nice day. There were lots of boats in the marina. I liked being out on the river. 
You know, everyone was happy.”
Mr. R. Rees, Bar Hill

“Very, very nice. I would go again. Everyone was very friendly.”
Mrs. J. Eyres, Willingham
