Why we floated the JB

We want to enable local people to enjoy the wonderful river environment on their doorstep – and build support to get the planned Bedford & Milton Keynes Waterway created, section by section, as a series of Waterway Parks. A cruise on the river is also a treat for visitors to the town.

Community groups can book the boat for their social outings, businesses can use it for client and staff events, and private individuals can use it as a unique event for all sorts of parties.

The JB also works with schools and colleges to provide project experience and support for history, geography, environment, social and business studies.
