Today is day.

This is our treasured electric boat, she is all dry, out of the water and getting ready for the 2024 season.

Not only is Marsh Harriet wheelchair accessible but your dogs can get on board too.

After 11 years of looking after X and more recently Instagram as a volunteer for the museum I am moving on at the end of this year. Exciting news and stories will continue so keep an eye out. Thanks for all your personal support & I have learnt a lot about social media. I thought this photo of Tyler’s cut taken in October paddling to the pub and back summed up moving on!
