Saturday was a fun day for the Trust

First we had a lunch to celebrate Sixers recent award, at which all the volunteers who have slaved on restoring the Purifier over the last thirty months, came to share. It is also recognised the other activities that Six has organised on behalf of the Trust. Many thanks Six.IMG_0310

Then in the evening we had the concert organised by Tony Cartwright as a fundraiser for the Trust; our sincerest thanks go to him and the musicians, shanty singers Swinging the Lead and our own nautical singer, songwriter Helen North. What a great evening that everyone enjoyed.
