The staff of the River Thames Boat Project gave a fascinating talk to Tamesis members last Thursday evening. Peter (the Skipper) and Kate Dodds (Fundraiser) took us through the 30 year history of the charity.
Thames Boat Project moved into the Tamesis office in early Februay, and have already started to be a valuable asset to the club. It is hoped to develop the cooperation between our organisations in the coming months.
The charity started with a specially adapted barge now named Thames Venturer and have recently taken delivery of the purpose built Thames Disoverer as well. They arrange trips for many different groups, and have schools come for the day.

Thanks to Sophie and team for a delicious supper and serving in the bar.
