As we prepare for the AGM next week we have been reflecting on our 25th celebrations last year, and looking forward to plans for 2018. In late August last year Waveney Stardust celebrated 25 seasons of safe and accessible broadland cruising with a boat parade and party at The Surlingham Ferry inn. As part of this Allan and Jane Dye, of AB Films Norwich, kindly donated their time to make a video and photographic record of the occasion.
We posted a selection of the still photographs as a slideshow last year and Allan has now finalised the video.
Watching the video reminded us of the wonderful support everyone gave us at the event, mirroring the support of customers, boatyards, town councils, volunteers and the media over our 25 years. It also reminded is how difficult it is to keep balloons tied to a marquee in strong winds!
The star of the video is of course Waveney Stardust – the purpose built cruiser which has bought so much pleasure to so many. She and her Waveney Stardust II have just been relaunched for the 2018 season and we are all looking forward to welcoming our first passengers in 2018 in the first week of April.
