Geoff Palmer and Anne Halsey were to be invited to Bradgate Rotary birthday presentation evening where we were please to be recipients of a cheque for £1000 and a good night was had by all.





Hello all, very sorry about the long delay in saying thank you for a lovely day out, just a little evidence of the happiness we shared and the beautiful sunny day.

What an absolute fantastic 45 mins we had on the barge with Santa and his helpers. We were in a party of 6 adults with 4 children and had the barge to ourselves.
The Baldwin Trust had thought of everything juice, biscuits for the children with a warm drink with mince pie for the adults. Would recommend this to everyone who has children.
All this plus a present for the kids for only £5! Thank you for a great time. We will be back next year :-)

We have used the Baldwin Trust boats now on a few occasions for family birthdays.  We have always had a fantastic time. The crew are very accommodating and friendly, nothing is too much trouble and they go out of their way to make sure you have a fantastic day.
The fact that the boats have lifts that take passengers from the footpaths down into the boat have made dreams come true for my parents who being disabled would not have been able to experience a boat trip.
Cannot thank Pete and his team enough.

We would like to thank the Baldwin Trust who have accommodated us now on a couple of occasions for family birthdays. We have always had a fantastic time.The Crew are extremely friendly and ensure that all passengers are safe and are aware of safety processes which saved me from worrying whilst my children were on board.
The boats have a lift to enable easy access both on and off the boat and encourages visitors to have a go at driving the boat whilst being supervised and helping with opening and closing of the locks, (my sons personal favourite).      
Thank you Baldwin Trust

The Baldwin Trust operates narrow boats in the Midlands, and, one of the many surprise presents for my 80th birthday was a day spent on one of their narrow boats, the crew were very friendly and accommodating and I was even entrusted with steering this 70 foot monster back to its home berth. A magical day with all my family together on this day.
I would have no hesitation in recommending the hire of one of these boats for special occasions.       
They are also fully equipped to accommodate the disabled, which allowed me to enjoy this experience despite having mobility issues.
