Due to the amount of activities JIGSAW is now running there will be no capacity for late bookings to any of our events. This is due to the additional admin it requires and our workload. All events are advertised in a timely manner but please be aware they close to bookings when full OR about 3-5 days prior to the event. If you purchase a ticket to any event and are unable to attend, do not offer this to other members on social media. Instead contact the JIGSAW Thornbury events email or phone us at the base. All bookings require a minimum of 48 hours’ notice to cancel with a full refund. This allows us time to fill your space. Cancellations with less than 48 hours’ notice will be non-refundable. Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
If you have any questions please email us at email@example.com

We have two trips available on The Willow Trust fully assessible canal boats on the Gloucester-Sharpness canal.

Both sessions will have a maximum of 30 people.
The afternoon session is a general session.
If you are unsure as to which session to book onto, please contact us by email firstname.lastname@example.org or calling the JIGSAW Family base on 01454 416381.
The boat was purpose- built for The Willow Trust designed to provide access for all – whatever their disability – however profound.
There is ample parking alongside the boats at our moorings and free car park passes are provided for all our guests.
Wide heavy-duty ramps ensure easy and safe access onto the boats and once on board the facilities include:
