This is our new pontoon that replaces the old "katakanu "pontoon.
The installation took 3 days and it has been paid for by Sport England.
It is wider, longer and more stable than the previous pontoon and we expect it to make embarkation and disembarkation easier.
The pontoon was "opened " by the Lord Lieutenant of Hertfordshire on 13th May.

We value the contribution that young people can make to our work.
A group of young volunteers usually work at CVSS on Saturdays and in the school holidays. It's an opportunity to develop new skills, practice the ones they already have (some are skilled sailors).
Some are working toward the Duke of Edinburgh award while others work at CVSS to learn valuable life skills, and because they want to carry out social service.
STUART PLEASE CAN YOU ARCHIVE THIS FOR FUTURE USE: WE NEED TO THINK ABOUT IT SO JUST REMOVE YOUNG VOLUNTEERS FOR MOMENT. THANKS
