News & Events

Here’s what’s been happening with Falcon Adam recently.

NEWS Refurbishment continues

The refurbishment programme continues – at the beginning of 2019 we had a new engine, gear box and cooling system installed, ready for a very successful season of boating!

NEWS Waterfest

Falcon Adam, along with the Kennet and Avon trust boat, Lady Hilda took part in the 2019 Reading Waterfest. We decorated the boats and the crew with the theme ‘scarecrows’. we showed people round both boats and ran free crafts for children. We won ‘best dressed crew’!

NEWS Marlow Light Parade

Falcon Adam was the only narrowboat amongst approx 25 smaller boats to take part in this community led event in Sept 2019. We decorated the boat very much on no budget, using flattened pie tins cut to fish shapes with battery lights poked through. It was very effective and we won ‘highly commended’!

NEWS Volunteers wanted!

Our trust would be most interested to hear from anyone who has something to offer, no previous boating experience is necessary as a full introduction would be given. Volunteers are needed for painting, carpentry, social media, engine maintenance and skippering. This is a great opportunity to make a real difference to your local community.

“Thank you for a fantastic time and a superb experience, we had a great time”
