Many years on I meet Alan Dean. Retired from the merchant Navy, Alan is a model boat enthusiast and builds his own. Alan has all his boats with him in his Citroen estate but sadly there was no lake. The council took it away with a promise to build a new one.
Some time later I hear the council got money from the EU. They built a new lake and the Mayor will open it. Alan invites me along and promises to introduce me to ” a character or two”
The New Brighton Model Boat Club members meets regularly on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday at the pool from March till October. If your interested just pop along to the pool on the days mentioned above and you will receive a cordial and enthusiastic welcome.
