NEMT is now fully open for business on Tuesday – Wednesday from 09.30 until 15.30 and Saturday from 10.00 until 14.00.
However, a great deal of work has continued during these difficult times with great progress on the 1886 South Shields ‘Bedford Lifeboat’ and carriage which is now on target to be completed by June this year.
A great weekend was had by all who attended the first NEMT event after lockdown was eased. Crews on Henry Frederick Swan, Rachel Douglas and Royal Diadem11 were made so welcome by everyone at Blyth Marina on Saturday and Sunday 17th and 18th July, and for us a great pleasure to be there.
On Sunday, we sailed to Blyth Tall Ship where Williams was on show, we were given a tour of her and their excellent facilities by John Bell and company along with tea and refreshments. It really doesn’t get much better than that!
On our return to the Tyne in a rather choppy sea and north-easterly breeze we were escorted by a pod of dolphins which provided a great deal of entertainment especially after such a great weekend.
