Date for the Diary

Nick Ardley Westmoreland at Otterham

An important date for the diary from our friend Nick Ardley, who also supplies today picture of the barge Westmoreland at Otterham Quay. Says Nick,

“This is from Geoff Gransden of Edith May fame. I was asking about where ‘they’ were with the Westmoreland. He tells me: “We are in the process of forming the Westmoreland Trust CIC and we are holding a presentation in the village hall on the 12th April 19.30 to keep the villagers (in Lower Halstow) and other interested people informed. A few hurdles to cross, but hopefully it is coming together now.”

The village hall in Lower Halstow is off the main road running through the sleepy creek side settlement and is sign posted… Picture attached of the dear old thing in her lighter berthed in Otterham Creek, Upchurch, and soon, hopefully, to be on the move…”
Thanks for that Nick and for the photograph.
