Boats Blessed for 2016

The Blessing of the Boats went ahead in the newly-landscaped boat park despite a gale that prevented the boats from launching, though pilot gig Heart of Hayling came over from Northney powered by a fearless crew of youngsters coxed by Andrew Berry. Canon Tom Kennar, rector of Havant, conducted a lively service and sprinkled holy water over the craft. 
Mike Gilbert lit the barbecue and laid on a great spread - many thanks, Mike!
