The latest news on the May Day Bank Holiday Boat Gathering is that all boats are invited to meet at Bottom Lock on the Friday evening for a BBQ. We will then be sorting out for the trip up to South Kyme village on the Saturday morning.

Sounds formal but it’s not, this is just our annual get together. We decided that after the great food that we had at the dinner last year we decided to return to the Carre Arms Hotel for this year’s celebration. Becky Franks will be co-ordinating the event so if you are intending to attend, please get in touch with her. You can phone on 01529 469523 or email email@example.com .
Do come along for a meet up and chat, the food and beer is good as well.
I put out a request some time ago for old newsletters to add to the archive of the Trust. Normally I occasionally get some from members from all over the country, however, this time the source was much closer to home. I was clearing out some files recently and found three more newsletters dating from 1992 and 1993, just goes to show what turns up. If you happen to find any old newsletters when tidying up please don’t throw them out but have a quick check on the website to see if they are already online. I would be delighted to receive them and if you wanted them back promise to return them after scanning.
Yesterdays work party in South Kyme went well with the installation of two of the new ‘Destination South Kyme’ notice boards. The artwork for the notice boards is yet to be completed so there are some temporary notices in place until the final information material has been completed. Additionally work was done to clear some of the mud in the river that was in front of the moorings to improve the depth of water for boats.
