From Chris Harvey of the Thames Sailing Barge Trust via, in this case, an email from Restoration Project Manager, William Collard (Thank you, William) a possible last minute stocking filler if you are stuck for a gift for the barge-nut in your life.
Chris says “Christmas is fast approaching, and here’s a gift idea for anyone you know who is fond of Thames sailing barges – or maybe you just want to treat yourself. All you need to know about our beautiful 2015 calendar and how to order can be found on the attached flyer. Any purchases you make will be helping us to looking after our two historic barges, Centaur and Pudge“.
Meanwhile, on Cambria, another burst of heroic hard work from the team sees our poly tunnel sheeting now stretched across the arches and we are nicely snugged down for the winter re-fit. Inevitably the existing team are always asking around for more volunteers and now, if you fancy a bit of painting or cleaning or any other barge related work, you will be all warm and dry out of the wind and weather.
