Just in from the RSS feed (Yachting Monthly) a piece from Dick Durham saying that the rebuild of Medway Queen has “stalled” due to lack of funds.
The Cambria Volunteers always felt as one with the ‘Medway Queen lot’ and members of their team were regularly dropping in on us as we rebuilt, comparing notes on their own steel hull re-vamp, which had to be done the old riveting way to secure their own Lottery Fund money.
The Dick Durham article tells that there is something we can all do to help, if so inclined. There is a book “co-authored by Bob Stokes (Project Manager) and Richard Halton. Cover price is £12-50. The book can be purchased from the Visitor Centre or MQPS event stands or can be ordered by post or through www.medwayqueen.co.uk Please send orders and your cheque to “MQPS (Sales)”, 46 Brockenhurst Close, Wigmore, Gillingham, Kent. ME8 0HG”.
Thanks for that, Dick. Maybe some of our readers will buy the book.
