BEDFORD community boat, the John Bunyan, launches its 2017 season with an evening fish and chip supper cruise on Easter Saturday (April 15).
This will be followed on Easter Sunday with an afternoon tea cruise and a further afternoon cruise on the bank holiday Monday.
There will then be public cruises every Thursday and Sunday with fish and chip supper cruises on various Friday and Saturday evenings.
The boat, which carries 50 passengers, also has monthly lunch cruises to The Anchor in Great Barford and afternoon tea cruises to The Barns Hotel, plus a monthly jazz cruise featuring top national and regional jazz trios.
The John Bunyan provides cruises both public and private hire on Bedford’s River Great Ouse. Last year it carried over 7000 passengers and in total has carried over 22,000 passengers since it was launched in July 2013.
The boat is fully licensed for drinks, has a 5-star food certificate and is available for private functions and parties of all descriptions including wedding cruises.
Due to being run by volunteers prices are very reasonable and cruises can be booked online at www.johnbunyanboat.org or call 01908 690301.
