cecilia2Our Society owns the 70ft narrowboat ‘Cecilia.’

This 8-berth boat is able to offer trips and short breaks to groups of people and other charities that would not normally have the opportunity of experiencing the inland waterways.

We welcome any approach from groups involved with children, scouts, girl guides, age concern and support groups in general.

We are currently talking to potential sponsors about the possibility of finding a corporate sponsor to cover our costs. If we are successful it will mean use of ‘Cecilia’ can be offered free of charge. Until then all we ask for is a voluntarily contribution to cover costs.

If anyone has any knowledge of groups who they think might benefit from such activities then let us know. If anyone has any knowledge of a commercial company who may be interested in sponsoring such a boat with all the goodwill publicity that will come from such a partnership again please get in touch with David Wheeler Worcester-Birmingham & Droitwich Canals Society.


Anyone using the ‘Cecilia’ is urged to watch this important video┬áproduced by Canal & River Trust before using her and also download the Boater’s Handbook.

A user guide produced by WBDCS can be found onboard but you can download this here to read before you embark.
