Crewing The Beatrice

Beatrice is operated by two or three volunteers. One is a qualified skipper and at least one of the others will be a fully trained crew member. All our crew volunteers take a full part in running the boat, under the supervision of the skipper. They take their turn at the helm and at working the locks. Passengers are encouraged to help with the locks but, with children, a member of school staff must also help.

The Role of the Trustees

The Charity was formed in July 1978 as the North Staffordshire Handicapped Children’s Boat Committee.
The charity name was changed to the Beatrice Charity in 2001 and (with redevelopment of its Etruria base) Beatrice’s mooring was moved to the Cheddleton Flint Mill near Leek, on the Caldon Canal.

Why Beatrice is important

Beatrice helps people with additional educational needs, the elderly and those with other disabilities:
