On Thursday 7th December 2006 at 11am, the new boatshed and pontoons at Newsons will be officially opened by Lady Anne Wake-Walker.
A couple of years ago the main shed burnt down, but when the workshop doors are opened MTB 102 will again enter the building for further restoration work to be carried out.
It’ll be a big day after all the hard graft that has gone into rebuilding the yard. Anyone wishing to attend will be able to come into the main building and talk about any of the boats currently being worked on.
If you can get there, I say go along and cheer!
