End of Season Fish & Chips Night Cruise for Severn Unit


For the Tewkesbury based Severn Unit, their annual fish & chips supper and night cruise is always a popular event and this year was no exception.

Unit members and their partners took three boats, including their own training vessel, MVS Minerva, up the River Avon through Strensham Lock to the Flybridge at Defford for their supper.

HOU Nic Price said “Although we started in the light by the time we came to leave the Flybridge, darkness had drawn in and it was a particularly dark night on the river, as there was no moon.

Although this event marks the end of our evening training sessions afloat for the year, unit members will still be kept busy as a full autumn programme has been planned inside.

We keep two of our boats out on the river the whole year, as very often we find the winter is one of our busiest seasons for call outs of various kinds and we prefer to have the boats ready for action if required.”
