Members of a Redbridge social group have tried their hand at boating along the River Lee.Redbridge 18 Plus hired a canal boat for a scenic day tip from Broxbourne to Ware, in Hertfordshire. They passed several country
pubs along the way, as well as tricky locks, where some members had to steer the boat while others operated
the huge gates. Member Elliot Barclay said the day was a “great experience all round”. He added: “Controlling
the locks and steering the boat was very enjoyable. I would recommend it to anyone.” Redbridge 18 Plus is a social group offering organised events and trips for 18 to 40-year-olds. The group meets on Fridays at Redbridge Central Library, Clements Road, Ilford, from 8.30-10pm.
