Re-Union Canal Boats has confirmed they have now completed the transfer and handover of all Falkirk operations and assets to the new, independent Go Forth and Clyde.
Go Forth and Clyde was set up after a strategic review by Re-Union’s Board in 2020, after consultation with volunteers and stakeholders, to allow the Falkirk activities to grow and develop to meet emerging local needs.
Re-Union has transferred all assets at the Lock 16 base to Go Forth and Clyde, including the Jaggy Thistle canal boat, the RYA Training School and a small cash settlement. They also worked to secure the lock-keeping contract with Scottish Canals for a renewed period in Go Forth and Clyde’s name, which ensured the employment and experience of staff and volunteers could be retained and developed by Go Forth and Clyde.
Re-Union has expressed their best wishes for the new Board of Directors, staff and volunteers at Go Forth and Clyde, and “good luck in the future in growing canal activities and projects”.
