If you’re coming to the Southend Barge Match on Sunday and watching from the Pier, do come and see us in the Royal Pavilion. SSBR has an exhibition there, and Graham, Tricia and Don would love to see you.
Pudge is going to the Ipswich Maritime Festival and you can visit her there on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th August. She will be moored at Orwell Quay, Ipswich, and will be open to the public from 10.30 to 18.00 each day. Entry on board is free, although donations to the Thames Sailing Barge Trust, which owns and maintains Pudge, will be very welcome and will go towards her upkeep.
If you’re in the Ipswich area this weekend, do pay Pudge a visit and find out about the story of her involvement at Dunkirk.
Here’s the link to the Maritime Festival’s website, which has all the details.
