welcome to the December edition of the lock-keeper.
Christmas is approaching..fast, and it will soon be 2005. A new year which will bring new challenges for us all, no doubt.
The GoBarging team are looking forward to the holiday season, some time with family and friends, then its back to work getting ready for the new season.
In this month's lockkeeper, Belle Epoque returns home, we announce our Provence cookbook and Languedoc Wine book winner, and we have a final 2004 competition to win a marvellous cruise for two next year on L'Impressionniste in Provence.
We also have an update on refits for L'Impressionniste and Scottish Highlander.
For next season, we have an offer for anyone cruising on Highlander with proven Scottish connections, and some great news for keen Salmon fishers. For any cheese connoisseurs out there, we also have a guide to the 'smelliest' cheeses in France.
Something to interest everyone we hope... ...
From everyone at European Waterways GoBarging, we wish you all a Happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.
I look forward to hearing from you, and seeing you at our website, where you can find out all about GoBarging and keep up to date with the latest news as it breaks....
please read on and welcome aboard,
Derek Banks - Chairman
