Together with Girlguiding Birmingham we own a 12 berth narrowboat called Tuptonia.
For most of the year the boat is at the permanent mooring at Hockley Heath in Warwickshire but each year comes down to Northamptonshire for several weeks, during that time groups can book evening, day or weekend trips. The dates for these are published in News and Views at the start of each new year and generally get filled up quickly! Skippers are allocated for each trip.
The weeks in Northamptonshire are mostly for our county’s use and Northamptonshire groups can also book the boat at any time during the year whilst it’s moored at Hockley Heath.
Tuptonia is ideal for planning something new or different for your unit – maybe a weekend for your Brownie Pack or even a week with your Guide unit. Perhaps it could be a peaceful weekend outing for your District team?
