Working to restore a rural waterway

South Kyme Boat Gathering 2017

In conjunction with South Kyme village festival committee the Trust are holding a Boat Gathering over the May Day Bank Holiday weekend, Friday April 28th to Monday 1st May 2017.

The Trust are celebrating 30 years since Bottom Lock was restored and the Navigation reopened through to South Kyme.

For more details and to book in, please contact Sue Sowerby on or phone 01522 856810

This is the latest update on the events over the weekend of the Boat Gathering.


Unfortunately, due to low ticket sales, the banquet night on Friday 28th has been cancelled as the organisers couldn’t cover their costs.  The Hume are now doing Fish’n’Chip supper on Friday 5-9.30 pm instead and booking is advisable.

The Saturday night disco & BBQ, the Sunday fete, games, BBQ and Quiz etc. will all go ahead at the Village Hall rather than The Tower.  The disco & BBQ will be £10 ticket.

To purchase tickets for Saturday or Sunday, contact Becky Franks at
