This morning started early for us as we wanted to listen to BBC Radio Northampton to hear the item on the Boaters' Christian Fellowship at the Crick Boat Show. It was to be in their Sunday programme some time between 0600 and 0900. We switched on at 0615 and heard the item at about 0710. Jan had been interviewed yesterday, along with Mark Chester, the lead Waterways Chaplain. The package included clips from Mark and Jan explaining what their respective organisations do. After the item was broadcast the programme plugged the BCF service in the beer tent which was happening at about 1010. Martin Heath, the presenter, asked listeners to contact the programme with suggestions for hymns or worship songs suited to a church service in a beer tent at a boat show. One idea was "'Ail to the Lord's annointed", which worked well on the radio.
Derwent6 and Sian of Mochyn Du.
Last day of the show tomorrow. We might buy a 12V fridge to replace the 230V one. It still works fine, but it means having the inverter on the whole time; the combination being quite a drain on the poor old batteries. We looked at a Lec Inlander in Midland Chandlers on what seems a good deal. Anyone want a perfectly good mains fridge (no icebox)?
