EII has passed the tough­est test of all – the kids test! The float­ing class­room, which is owned and op­er­ated by en­vi­ron­men­tal char­ity Ground­work South, has had a brand new demon­stra­tion kitchen fit­ted along with a new bar, elec­tric gen­er­a­tor and a new set of bat­ter­ies.

Chil­dren from White­hall Ju­nior School, in Cow­ley Road, Uxbridge, and Bishop Winnington-In­gram School, in South­cote Rise, Ruis­lip, were treated to a cruise up the Grand Union Canal from Uxbridge to the Colne Val­ley Park above Den­ham to cel­e­brate the re­fit on Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 9,

Then once the chil­dren had gone, Els­dale’s spon­sors, in­clud­ing staff from the Uxbridge of­fice of food company Gen­eral Mills, and caterer Thomas Franks, en­joyed a cock­tail at the li­censed bar on board.
