The new Tresco & Bryher gig was launched today, Sunday 25th April 2010. The forecasted weather thankfully being replaced with bright sunshine and blue skies as a gathering of islanders and visitors flocked to New Grimsby beach to watch Father Guy bless the newest member of the club, Alfie Jenkins.
Built by Peter Martin of St. Marys, the new arrival has been given the best start in life, as Scillonian as possible, a true local.
The club has worked hard over the past three years to raise the money, thousands upon thousands of raffle tickets have been sold, sponsored rows, pasties and sandwiches made and buckets rattled at unsuspecting visitors. We would like to say a massive and heartfelt thank you to everyone who has supported our efforts and who have made this special and exciting day possible, we really are so very grateful for all of your kindness and generosity!
No time to settle in though Alfie… you’ve got a busy weekend coming up!
