Wally Grout, who has been leading on the training, said: “It’s important that the ferry operates to the highest of safety standards so all the skippers and crew have been out on the water to prepare for the opening weekend.

“We’re always on the lookout for new volunteers. We’re a good friendly team and there’s no better way of spending a morning or an afternoon pottering about on the River Ouse. At the same time we’re providing a service that people really value and enjoy.”
