Laying up Lunch Saturday 21st October 2023
Our annual “Laying-Up” lunch took place at the Three Horseshoes pub in Laleham on Saturday 21st October. The venue was chosen to allow crews to attend by boat if they wished, as there is mooring on the town quay a short walk from the pub. Our usual venue, the Thames Court at Shepperton, was not reachable by boat this year due to the extended closure of Chertsey Lock. In the event, a red-boarded river meant that all members attended by car, with the notable exception of Robbie and Jill who were able to stroll gently from their new home on Thames Side. The three Horseshoes may well be their “local” from now on!
Thirteen members gathered for the meal and were welcomed by Commodore Tony. It was particularly pleasing to welcome Maurice and Ann. Thanks are due to Geoff for collecting them and returning them home. Both the surroundings and the food were excellent. The Three Horseshoes will certainly be on our list of possible venues for future events.
