It is great that Dacorum Borough Council was able to help Herts Boat Rescue with this grant. It has allowed the team to replace a boat and engine, which was damaged during a training exercise, this will mean that the team will be ready to respond to any flood threat to the area. With this funding now in place the team will be able to expand its safety patrols around the waterways in the Dacorum and surrounding area, these safety patrols which take place each month allow the team to educate the public on water safety.

Hertfordshire boat rescue is a totally volunteer service and all funds have to be collected through grants such as this one and the generosity of public donations to enable to team to continue its work. The team is always looking for new members and these are both operational and non-operational.

Stuart Foreman (Chairman) said “It is fantastic news to be awarded this grant by Dacorum Borough Council and means that the team is able to respond to flooding incidents in the area much quicker and will also be able to educate the residents in Dacorum on water safety.
