Copper Jack invaded by Jolly Bunch of Pirates

 

On June 14th   Hands up for Downs,  a support group for families with young children with Downs took over Copper Jack for a cruise along The River Tawe.  Brothers, Sisters  Mums  Dads and Granddad Bob all dressed up as Pirates,  enjoyed the trip in perfect weather. Not a single shot was fired or cutlass drawn in anger. The sound of happy families was just music to the lucky crew.

Lord Mayor cruises River Tawe on Copper Jack

Swansea Lord Mayor Cllr. Ceinwen Thomas and her consort Mr. David Thomas were welcomed aboard Copper Jack on Wednesday 26th November by Trustees and volunteers of Swansea Community Boat Trust. The visit marked the tenth anniversary of the setting up of SCBT.

A cold but sunny morning was ideal for the viewing of the many industrial heritage sites along the river bank. With many of the deciduous trees now shedding their leaves the ever changing scenery impressed our guests.

The Lord Mayor was pleasantly suprised to hear that since our inaugaral public cruise  by our new  purpose built Copper Jack, on June 10th 2014, SCBT have carried around 8000 passengers.  She further commented on the high quality fitting out of Copper Jack providing a most comfortable trip for passengers. Despite the rather low temperatures being endured by our outside crew, the enclosed nature of the passenger area with the Boat’s efficient heating system provided a cosy enviroment.

Cllr Thomas  a long time supporter of SCBT congratulated Trustees and volunteers for the many years of effort to put in place such an outstanding experience for locals and visitors to Swansea.

Before departing The Lord Mayor assured those present that a River Trip on Copper Jack would feature  highly on her list of ‘Things to see or do in Swansea’  for her many visitors to Swansea. She wished SCBT every succes for the future.
