Doors Open Day river trip success

21 Sep 2010

Almost 200 people enjoyed a trip down the River Clyde at the weekend, courtesy of Clyde Waterfront.

The special event was part of Glasgow's Doors Open Day festival which ran throught the weekend, with hundreds of glasgow's impressive buildings throwing their doors open to the public.

The trip down along the river was sponsored by Clyde Waterfront as an opportunity for local people to connect with the regeneration of the Clyde corridor.

Vikki Kewney, Project Manager for Clyde Waterfront, commented: "This was a really successful event with almost 200 people joining us on our trip 'doon the watter'!   Glasgow Doors Open Day celebrates heritage of the area and this event promoted the important role of the Clyde in the history of Glasgow.  The trip gave passengers an opportunity to explore some of the history of the Clyde, as is outlined in the 'Clyde Heritage Guide,' and also hear about the Clyde Waterfront regeneration plans worth £5-6bn (over 20-25 years) that involves linking past and future."

The river trip was provide by Clyde Cruises who also run a regular River Link service on the river.

The good weather was the icing on the cake for a very successful day out.
