You will by now have all seen the latest addition to the play equipment at the recreation ground. Our boat has weathered the stormy winter well, at times we were scared she was actually going to set sail heading for the river Brede. But she stayed steady and is looking forward to warmer weather and welcoming lots of children to come and play this Summer.
Huge thank you to Chris Allum, our resident village carpenter, who took Julie and Bruni’s sketches and measurements and made them into a reality. It is great to have such a unique piece of play equipment and something celebrating the local maritime heritage.
Now the drier weather is here (hopefully) she can have a coat of paint and be officially named.
To be in with a chance of naming the boat and getting your picture in the paper write your name suggestion along with your own name, address and phone number on a piece of paper and put it in an envelope with a minimum 50p donation (towards more play equipment).
