On a particularly nice Sunday towards the end of September, Trustees and Volunteers came together to celebrate another good year for New Horizons.
Having an opportunity to meet with volunteers and friends of the boat is always a lovely affair. A substantial buffet lunch was provided by our Chairperson, Sue, and was enjoyed by all.
The afternoon also marked the retirement of Marion Eyres, our Booking Officer, who has been involved with the boat over, many seasons in a variety of roles. Our thanks were extended to Marion and best wishes for the future shared.
