Moored peacefully in the Saltisford Arm. Last night we welcomed five boat loads of youngsters from Tynedale Middle School from Blythe, Northumberland. What a great bunch of canny lads and lasses (Sorry about that, must have been watching a rerun of the Likely Lads). They certainly livened the place up. They are polite, cheerful and full of a joie de vivre a lot of us could do well to copy. We could use a few more boat loads like it.
Well done Tynedale Middle, they are a credit to your school and to their parents, keep sending them on trips like this, they cheer the canals up no end.
