Autumn Fair – great fundraising day for the RNLI and Harwich Lifeboat!

It was great to have a visit by both Lifeboats from Harwich and to see some familiar faces on board!

There were Christmas cards & calendars for sale, pottery, body shop products, honey, jewellery, books, yacht grot (or as some would prefer, pre-loved boating paraphernalia) and lots more and of course delicious homemade cakes, hot dogs and burgers – the early birds were treated to bacon sandwiches!

We raised over £2,500 for the Harwich Lifeboat and there was a record of over £1,000 of Christmas cards and calendars sold.  Thank you to everyone who helped or came along on the day.

Friday 30th September 8pm – Talk by Cathy Brown

“A Taste of the Southern Ocean” Penguins, whales, dolphins, seals, albatross – the wildlife is as amazing as the weather is daunting. Visiting the Falklands, South Georgia, the Antarctic Peninsula and the southern tip of South America was the trip of a lifetime. Following in the footsteps of Shackleton, weathering three Force 11 storms, marvelling at glaciers and icebergs, we discovered why the world’s most remote cruising ground is such a magnet – and why not to go there by yacht!

Please order meals before 7 pm (latest)

No need to book – just come along.  The talk starts at 8pm.
