Events Trailer – Available for use by IWA branches and waterway societies
This trailer provides all the equipment that you all need to set up, run, and clear an event of any size, as well as providing a marquee for the welfare of your volunteers, with a catering kit and kitchen equipment for tea breaks or hot meals. It has tools, fencing, cable ties, marking out paint, litter pickers etc. A full contents list is available on request, but the main items are given below.
It is available to all IWA branches and waterway societies. If the event is an IWA badged one there will only be the cost of any consumables used, but otherwise a donation towards its running costs will be appreciated as the trailer is only funded by the events it supports.
The trailer presently weighs 1700Kg, so a substantial car will be needed to tow it, such as a large saloon or 4×4.
The towing vehicle must have trailer and ‘occasional business use’ insurance. Vehicles owned by IWA and WRG are insured to tow the trailer.
IWA has insurance in place to cover the contents and the trailer itself when not being towed. It is a condition of the insurance that when not attached to a vehicle, the trailer must be secured in a locked building or yard not accessible to the public, or secured to an immovable object.
