The current major project is the refit of the Henry Frederick Swan Рbecome a Volunteer. The annual fees are £15 per annum to cover administrative costs.

NEMT Workshop Facilities:
With the help from The National Lottery Awards for All, new wood working machines are now installed in our workshops and not only will these be essential to the progress on our own vessels under restoration and repair, but we can now offer a machining facility for a small fee.
