The Faversham Creek Trust entertains The Mayor

Thirty guests came to the Faversham Creek Trust Charity Lunch to learn about the Trust and what it is doing for Faversham.
They were given guided tours and saw the two boats being built, one under the apprentice scheme run by Simon Grillet and the other in preparation for the Trust’s enterprising ‘Boat Camp’ project for young people run by Alan Thorne.IMG_0365
