There were a few posts earlier in the year about the temporary disappearance of the SSBR website.
This is just to remind everyone that the SSBR site is now up and running again and still has all its mine of barge information. Many thanks to John White for persevering with it.
The website’s address is:- https://www.sailingbargeresearch.org.uk/
We’re having an Open Day at the SSBR Archive at North Fambridge Yacht Haven on Saturday 2nd June. Great opportunity to have a lovely day out by the River Crouch and to see our collection – our treasure house – of 30,000 items of barge memorabilia. There will be books and paintings on sale too. Do come along and see us.
There’s a special event coming up in Maldon that really shouldn’t be missed.
The Thames Sailing Barge Trust and the Society for Sailing Barge Research are holding an Archive Thames Sailing Barge Film Evening on Saturday 11th March at Maldon Town Hall, Market Hill, Maldon.
Some of the films will not have been shown before.
The event is to raise funds for the SSBR and Thames Sailing Barge Trust. Tickets are available in advance and cost £7.00 per person. On the evening they can be purchased for £8.00.
Doors open at 7:00 pm and the film show starts at 7:30 pm. There will be a real ale bar and teas and coffee. We will also hold a raffle.
To obtain tickets visit the Maldon Tourist Information Office, Wenlock Way, Maldon, or they can be obtained by post by sending a cheque payable to Thames Sailing Barge Trust and a self addressed envelope to: John Rayment, 12 Wisdoms Green, Coggeshall, Colchester. Essex CO6 1SG.
