Boat Trip 2011


Boat Trip Review  Sunday 10th July 2011, 12th Anniversary

Nottingham Branch
It was a School Re-Union theme onboard The Nottingham Princess for the Nottingham Branch 12th Anniversary boat trip on the river Trent which saw a lot of cruisers taking part in the theme.Teresa was the added helper with the raffle along with Prisca & Jo, as usual they did an excellent job in selling all the raffle tickets, it does help when people contribute such excellent prizes.

It’s clear by the photos that a large number of people make a special effort with the theme, Pete normally awards a prize to the person who makes a special effort, due to the excellent response he felt it would be unfair this year.

As usual the food onboard the Nottingham Princess was up their usual top standard, consisting of beef, pork & turkey buffet style with all the trimmings.

Chairman Eddie Pollard was to control the well donated raffle, quickly followed by the resident DJ to which dancing is almost compulsory on the way back into port.

The corporate donations were made by T C Harrison JCB, Maxwell Building Group, Tanbury Builders, Lambert Car Sales, AB Components, Lafarge Aggregates, Jordan Surfacing, Mertrux  & Breedon Aggregates plus all individual donations.

Next years trip is  Sunday 8th July 2012 with a Mexican theme
