"The Canal Boat experience was a lovely chance to get away from the office environment and spend time with colleagues on a more casual level. It was a great opportunity to get to know others on a deeper level in a calm setting sharing the same experience. The waterways volunteers and staff (plus the Beagle!) are welcoming, full of knowledge, and volunteer their time to give people a warm and welcoming experience. Would absolutely recommend for group activities and R&R staff outings"
