An Evening with the Trust

Last night, our Patrons, the Countess Sondes and Sir David Melville, and the Chairman and Trustees, entertained a number of invited guests to a tour of the Purifier and later a reception on TSB Repertor, [Many thanks to David & Elaine Pollock]. This was to introduce the Trust, its aims, history and future, to a group of people not previously involved or fully aware of us.  An inspirational talk was given by Tim Stonor, which can be seen in full below.IMG_2452

Do you remember the Eye of the Wind

EYE OF THE WIND EBOOK pg1

EYE OF THE WIND EBOOK pg2

The Trust and friends have invited a group of people who have memories of the fitting out of the Eye of the Wind, in Faversham in 1973 for an evening of reminiscence about the Eye of the Wind: The Faversham Years, on Saturday February 21st.

The evening will consist of  a three part film showing;  The History of Eye of the Wind,  The Restoration in Faversham, the Departure from Faversham 
 Party and the Beginning of the Voyage to Australia

David Beavan, skipper for the Leila Trust 
 will talk about the the Continuing Relevance of Tall Ships in the modern world – they are just starting a project to take 400 people from Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth to sea, possibly leading to apprenticeships or training for the offshore windfarms. An inspiring role for a Tall Ships Trust. They have also offered a berth to an unemployed or otherwise disadvantaged person from Faversham. Watch this space!

The invitations for this event were limited by the capacity of the Fleur Hall, but the hope is to use the evening to start to gather more information about relatively recent history in the Creek. The Eye of the Wind restoration was a big event which has not really been documented in Faversham’s records and the Trust would like to start to gather up more memories, not only of the Eye but of other events on the Creek.

If you have any memories, photos or other mementos of the time the Eye was here in the 1970s or of any other interesting restorations or other events in the last fifty years or so, please let us know. We are hoping to run another Eye of the Wind evening later in the year in a larger venue and hope to be able to run others along the same lines, sharing and recording living memories.
