April 23rd (Wednesday) is the actual date of her launching. The ship will be dressed overall for that day. Saturday 26th will be an open day at Gillingham Pier for society members and the public. We will invite as many ex crew members as possible to “re-join” their old ship. The ship and visitor centre will be open and light refreshments available. Contact Brian Goodhew on 01795 843317 for more details
On Sunday 27th there will be an inter-denominational thanks giving church service on board the ship at about 2pm including a blessing of the ship. Contact Mark Bathurst for more details: 01843 227941 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The Visitor Centre will again be open for the afternoon.
We know you are all excited to get on the PS Medway Queen and have a tour around the ship, and soon at will be possible, the access ramp for the ship should be in place by the end of the month!
But we wouldnt advise anyone to turn up to soon, as it is just an estimate, but if you would like more information about getting on the ship, you can e-mail email@example.com
