Buoyant Band Boosts Boat Appeal

The band was proud to support this wonderful charity by playing in beautiful surroundings:

A community has begun fundraising to buy a new purpose built narrowboat.
The boat will replace the current boat Pamela May which is equipped with a wheelchair lift and disabled toilet facilities so that no one is excluded from enjoying local canals.

The Pamela May is run by the Droitwich Waterways Trust Limited, a charity which runs trips for members of the community and promotes the preservation of the Droitwich Canal.

They are now nearing their target of £110,000 and held a Pamela May Day in David’s Garden, Ash Lane, Martin Hussingtree, Worcester. The two acre garden is divided into areas each with its own unique planting. Some of these areas include a romantic folly, a secret fairy garden, a beach garden and wildlife pond, a jungle and a Japanese tea garden. New additions for this year are Ironhenge and the bee garden which is a haven for wildlife.

There was entertainment all day, which included Morris Dancers, The Tenbury Teme Valley Band and Droitwich Community Choirs.
The author of Agatha Raisin and the Hamish Macbeth book series, M C Beaton, was in attendance to sign books.

Delicious refreshments were available and the day ended with a balloon race.
