HIP Members had a relaxing day on the "Mary Sunley" Canal boat.
Trevor our skipper took us on a trip from Higher Poynton to Marple . We couldn't have had a more perfect day for the trip, a gentle breeze and bright blue skies.
The boat was comfortable and well equipped for us all, we putted along at a leisurely 4mph , taking in the wildlife which was in abundance. We saw so many goslings and several Storks on the banks of the canal.
We stopped for Fish and Chips at Marple, I have to say there really is no better smell than fish and chips, we all enjoyed our lunch on the boat, before turning round to go back to Poynton.
We would like to say a huge thank you The Macclesfield Co-Op local community fund who paid for this trip.
