On shore acivities

There is plenty more going on around Trinity Green and in Holy Trinity Church thanks to Father Andy Davis who has given us the Church for the day. The onshore activity is being organized by Stuart Ashworth and Site manger Barry Corke.

Entertainment in the TimeSpace amphitheatre is organised by Haslar Radio Manager Paul Dodd.  Refreshment stalls with food and alcoholic and soft drinks, teas and coffees,  will be available on Trinity Green.  There will be displays of arts and crafts in Trinity Church by local artists. Little Shipmates, also in the church, will provide an art competition for children. Prize giving will be around 4.30pm.
