Heather was towed with the new tender boat first thing on Saturday morning. The crew are now accustomed to people looking puzzled at the sight of the Heather under way ~ we don't take ourselves too seriously. Unfortunately, the engine broke down near to South Walsham. We were swiftly recovered by the smart, recently reconditioned rescue vessel operated by the friendly team at Ludham Bridge Boatyard.
The Coffee Morning for Macmillan exceeded all previous year's donations. Jill Wickens made a range of delectable cakes and teas and coffees were served in the saloon and the sunny after well. Guests came from the popular caravan site nearby and several fellow boat folk stepped aboard. On the house roof a length of red, white and blue pennants or bunting fluttered in the breeze. These were specially made from up cycled cloth by Kay Johnson at Chandlers' Yard, Ludham Bridge.
