The “pirate ship” which blocked Sun Pier for weeks in the summer left Rochester Riverside on Sunday afternoon and ran aground this morning at the entrance to Faversham Creek, resulting in a lifeboat callout. Coincidentally, today is Talk Like a Pirate Day.
Swale Borough Council’s Scrutiny Committee’s “Task and Finish Group” is reviewing whether the Council is making the most of Swale’s Leisure and Tourism, including our coast and water-based leisure, to encourage more people to visit the borough. Two members of this group, Cllr Ben Stokes and Cllr Mike Baldock, have set up a meeting for representatives of the boating clubs in Swale BC. If your club is on the Swale (or in the SBC area) please try to get a representative to the meeting on Friday 15 July, 10 am, at Swale House.
For further information phone Cllr Ben Stokes 01795 476979.
