The Medway Queen Preservation Society is planning an ambitious development program for 2021. Even though much of the work will be undertaken by the society’s volunteer teams the total cost is expected to be in the region of £45000. We are, of course, at the mercy of a range of unpredictable factors including the Covid restrictions and, as always, the weather! No doubt other such factors will come out of hiding as we progress. As much of this programme as possible will be completed in 2021, any remainder being tackled the following year. The plan includes a temporary move to Ramsgate in the summer where the ship will be put on the slipway for overdue hull maintenance and painting; as originally planned for last year. If circumstances permit we will organise an open event in some form while the ship is there.
