Hello Friends and Followers.
What a fabulous day today and not even the weather could spoil a perfect Sunday.
This morning we said “Cheerio” to Del and Al off of Narrowboat Derwent 6. It was fantastic to see them again after a few years. A lot of catching up was done whilst they stayed in the Arm. Hopefully we will not leave it so long before we see them again. Happy cruising Del and Al
The morning was then spent getting ready for the production of Idle Women of the Wartime Waterways produced and acted out by the Alarum Theatre. Now the weather forecast said it would be dry with heavy cloud, what it did not say was we would have rain, so we set up the gazebo for the refreshments, we put chair out and we hoped that people would turn up for the 2 pm production.
The weather did its best to upset the apple cart, but people did turn up thankfully and Jack and I were busy at the gazebo making teas and coffees.
Both Kate Saffin and Heather Wastie were brilliant. Their performances were inspired and informative with a few laughs thrown in and it is a performance everyone should see.
The second half was moved into the Cedar Room, because the weather decided to rain on us, but it did not dampen the spirits.
Poetry and Song were heard for the first time in the Cedar Room.
We all had such a wonderful afternoon with the group and I sincerely hope we can do something like this again sometime, because it is what the Arm is all about.
