Mainstay Trust Visit

Wednesday, 5th Sept 2018
Mainstay enjoyed a visit to the Glasgow Richmond Model Boat Club,
in Richmond Park
on Wednesday 5th September 2018.

Mainstay & GRBC members by the pond

The group were welcomed by Robert Forman and several members of the club and got the opportunity to learn about how the model boats are built, including timescales and materials used.

Lunch al fresco The service users and staff at Mainstay were also very lucky to be shown how to use the boats and enjoyed having the boats out on the water.

Robert very kindly took time to explain the history of Glasgow Richmond Model Boat Club and highlighted to the group how much time, work and effort each member has put into making the boat club so successful.

Mainstay members then enjoyed a fantastic lunch provided by the boat clubSmile and tucked into a variety of hot and cold snacks whilst sitting by the water enjoying the sunshine 

Mainstay service users were then very kindly presented with badges to remind them of their visit to the boat club.

Mainstay as an organisation would like to take this opportunity to thank Eddie, Robert and all the members who organised such a fantastic, fun filled and memorable day and we look forward to our next visit to the Glasgow Richmond Model Boat Club.
