welcome to the February edition of the lock-keeper.
Well, the long winter months pass by - surprisingly quickly, ...February already, and time to think of that summer holiday.
In this month's lock-keeper we have an exciting new competition for our readers. You can win a cruise for two on the luxury barge Actief, cruising the Royal river Thames in England.
We have a feature on Burgundy cruising submitted by one of our regular readers and barge aficionado - John Smith from Arizona.
We also catch-up with Don Harclerode from New Jersey, our caption competition winner, to share his reaction to the good news.
As usual, we feature some of our cruise options. This month we look at our flower show and gardens theme cruise itineraries which take-in the Chelsea and Hampton Court flower shows in England, and we'll update you on our exciting new offering - the Trans Europe six week cruise, the trip of a lifetime...
You may notice that we've changed the layout of the lock-keeper this month. We've added an easy navigation feature to let you move between items and we've also added links to back issues of the newsletter.
I hope you like this new version and if you have any comments, ideas for features, your cruise story to share, or would just like to say hello, please contact me here.
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
