Exceptional craftsmanship

 

Will brought along to the awards ceremony a Thames Skiff that he had built out of sweet chestnut. Much admired as a static exhibit, Will assured Prince Michael that it had performed very well in river trials.

 

 

The Transport Trust makes loans to groups, associations and individuals at advantageous rates for the restoration of artefacts - whether mobile or part of the infrastructure.  Applications must be supported by a simple business plan which demonstrates the financial viability of the project. A sample business plan is available on request from the Treasurer.

 

The Trust does occasionaly make Awards for schemes which further the preservation movement. Again if you wish further information please contact the Treasurer.
