Unfortunately the Thames Sailing Barge Parade will not run in September 2019 and is not expected to appear again until September 2021.
The main reason is simply lack of funding. We haven’t been able to secure enough funding to cover the whole event for 2019, aside from this, our Parade Master, Mr Gary Diddams, would not have been able to take part as his barge Gladys is being refurbished and may not be ready until late summer 2020.
We’ll update you on ideas we have for fundraising in the run up to 2021.
