All aboard in your wheelchair

If you are planning a trip to Scotland this summer and want to get out on the water, there are fun trips to be had on the wheelchair-friendly boats sailing on River Dee !

The Quay Watermen’s Association’s ambitious plans to transform Connah’s Quay Docks into a popular attraction saw the launch of two wheelchair-accessible boats at the weekend which went very well.

The river has a rich history and the plan is to make all of this available in the form of a boat tour. The boats, designed by the Wheeleyboat Trust are providing mobility impaired people with access to waterborne activities.

Locals who attended the launch at the week end had this to say

"We were very pleased to have people in wheelchairs who normally don’t have a chance to get in the river and they were so excited.

“I also think the knock on effect for the local economy and for the image of Connah’s Quay is going to be positive.”

Honouring the area’s maritime heritage, the boats have been named ‘Kathleen’ and ‘May’ after the three-masted topsail schooner built in Connah’s Quay.
