Meeting at the Collection

Date Posted: May 6, 2006

A meeting was held in the afternoon, 5th May, 2006, at The Collection, to explain and discuss the Trust’s plans and explain the support that the HLF will be looking when an application for full funding is submitted later this year.

Conservation, access and development plans will be undertaken by Wyn Davies of Frazer Nash Consultancy, who has been involved in projects such as the Cutty Sark, Trincolamee and Medway Queen. Frazer Nash will be instructing a team of experts shortly and their report should be available by the summer.

It is planned that the boat, fitted with an electric motor as it was when first built over a hundred years ago and remembered so fondly by many Lincoln people, will eventually be moored at the Sea Cadets Headquarters on Brayford Pool in the heart of Lincoln. It will be available for use by schools, groups and organisations for educational and recreational purposes and will show the importance of Lincoln’s waterways in its industrial development, the environmental benefits of electricity for propulsion and the wildlife of the waterways, as well as being an icon and a “flagship” for Lincoln.
