... and his year we began our long association with the British Legion Convalescent Home at Weston super Mare. 

Residents from the home joined us for a boat trip, a visit to the "Canal Tavern" and a meal aboard members boats. 

This became an annual event which alway gave great pleasure to both Club members and guests and enabled us to meet some wonderful and interesting people.
