The Company Barge will be launched on 6th June at 11.00 by the Mistress, Mrs Linda Salter, from South Dock Marina.
The Company commissioned the building of a new barge to compete in the Thames Barge Driving Trust events. This will give apprentices the opportunity to train to navigate a barge under oars. Funds for the cost of the barge have been raised by donations from Members of the Court and Freemen.
The Master has visited South Dock Marine several time to see how construction was progressing and has been delighted with the results.
