I have today had a chance to publish a new page on this site, the subject of which comes largely from Nancy Brambleby and Cathy Chapman. If you slide your cursor over the ‘ABOUT’ option on the black menu bar at the top of the home page, then open the ‘Restoration’ tab you will now find, as well as the Restoration Volunteers (our list of paint brush wielders, shipwrights, sparks and chippies) there is now a tab entitled “Servicing and Shore Based Volunteers’. Here we have tried to recognise all those who have worked and helped the Cambria in ways other than physical construction or painting – the ladies who run the Visitor Centre or staff the barge to show the public round, Cathy herself in the Shop, The Management Team, our helpers who turn out when we are moored in Gravesend, folk who do catering or organise bed linen for the Trainee Sailing students, or clean and service the barge between outings.
This is as yet a page under construction. Nancy and Cathy have raked through their memories and presumably photo albums and filing systems and have put together the most complete list we could provide but there will almost certainly be other people out there with many more suggestions both for peoples names and tasks. Please if you can think of anyone please let us know. We do not want to leave anybody out and the last thing we want is to cause offence by a sin of omission.
Email any suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org
