All through Febuary, the owner and restorer of HMS Gay Archer, Paul Childs is opening the boat for veterans and the public to have a good look around, ;learn of its and coastal forces history as well as find out the efforts Paul has gone through to realise this full restoration.
 
Admission is free but as the boat purely survives on self-raised finance any donation would be more than appreciated.
 
Please call Paul Childs to arrange a visit t/ 01278 429233 or myself, Geoff Marriott 07974 954 978

Hi Geoff,
 
That's great news,  outside chance I may get along, will of course call if it comes off, but best of luck with it, perhaps another time.
