We held our Carol Concert on board in the afternoon of Saturday 17th December. The Saturday volunteers had cleared snow and ice to make safe access to the ship possible and had conducted the usual ship tours earlier in the day. Despite the event being organised at very short notice a reasonable attendance was generated. Over 25 people including Medway Mayor, Cllr. Jan Aldous and her husband, Tony, and retired Deputy Lord Lieutenant of Kent Anne West. Cllr Pat Cooper, one of the council representatives on our committee also came along. The service was conducted by Father Gary Jenkins and seasonal refreshments were provided.
Our thanks to Pam and her team for another successful pilot, demonstrating the potential for events on board PS Medway Queen. It was a very long day and hard work clearing the ice and snow. Those attending were all complimentary as they left the ship after the service.
