Shop front in the summer

Sunday, 16 February 2014

We ran some Valentine's cruises on the trip boat on both Friday and Saturday evening. These trip departed Norbury at 7pm and went to High Onn and back, collecting the popular Fish and Chips at Gnosall on the outward leg of the journey. It's the first trips that the boat has done this year. Unfortunately the weather was against us on Friday, but was much better last evening. Keep an eye out on our website for our forthcoming trips here

We had an extremely busy day yesterday, it was certainly a case of all hands to the deck and we even had to rope some of the seasonal staff in to work! In total we had Denise in the Tea Room, Ange in the shop, office and chandlery, Mrs. Handbag cleaning and Bernard, Billy, Fred and myself turning the boats round.

We successfully sent out Phantasy, Phoenix, Ember, Sphynx and Pacific. The last three have been hired by our regular customer Laurance who has taken 24 children, it was a great sight, but I must say that I don't envy him. Do give them a wave if you see them.

We have swapped in both docks today, so Pippin will have a bit of tlc on her paintwork this week before she goes out on hire on Friday.

Best regards, David.
