    Just a quick email to let you know that everything worked perfectly for our trip last weekend to scatter my mother’s ashes on the Tyne. The River Escapes crew were very helpful and also sensitive to the occasion. They asked us where we wanted to go and so we were able to sail up to Wallsend which is where my mother spent most of her childhood.
    Thank you again for your help in getting the trip organised.
    Kind regards
