This week we will be holding one of our 'Show & Tell' sessions, where we have an interactive session with the attendees of the breakfast meeting.

In this session we ask our members and visitors to bring along details of anything that they think may be of interest to the other attendees. This might be a tool or gadget that they've found very useful, a website or blog that they find themselves regularly returning to, or maybe a piece of software or an app that they've found indispensable.

So put your thinking caps on and come armed with details of one or two items that will inform, surprise or delight us!

Business Cafe AGM (open to non members) plus Pioneer Sailing Trust

Thursday, 22 March 2018 00:00

Following the formalities of our (brief) AGM, we will be hearing from Felicity Lees, Sail Training Co-ordinator with the Pioneer Sailing Trust and finding out more about their charitable activities. Originally built in 1864, the 70ft Essex smack Pioneer fell into decay after a life spent dredging oysters in the North Sea. An audacious restoration project by the Pioneer Sailing Trust recovered the wreck in 1998 and restored her.

Felicity will be speaking about the inspiration and motivation behind Pioneer Sailing Trust and how it all started. She will briefly go through the history of the restoration of Pioneer and how that formed the charity which now works with young people. It takes them sailing on Pioneer as well as providing boat building apprenticeships. The framework of these apprenticeships centres around building rowing gigs and she will explain how this has linked into the local communities.

The Trust also run corporate days on Pioneer as a fundraiser to help young people in the area go sailing.

So make a note in your diary to come along and hear more about the Trust’s activities and their exciting plans for the future.
