I am sure you will be pleased to hear that the boat as designed and built by W. Bro. Philip Sutherland has this year managed to win the Carmarthen Raft Race, ahead of some stiff competition and by a good few lengths. The modified boat/raft was powered by members of St Peters plus 2 honorary members who performed outstandingly well and were well supported by members of the lodge and wider community.
A full and comprehensive debrief was held in the Quayside Brasserie.
The Lions Club, true to their word, presented a cheque to the value of £250 to the St Peters Lodge winning crew and the W. M. elected to donate this money to Carmarthen Food Bank.
All in all a great day on the river, which cannot go without recognition and thanks to another member of St Peters who freely and tirelessly donated his time ensuring the safety and smooth running of the event. Praise and thanks must go to W. Bro. Andy Fraser for his dedication and discrete devotion in supporting this event.
We now await to see what W. Bro. Philip has in mind for next year. I'm advised he already has a plan....
Thank you all for your support and for those that have yet to, there is still time to donate.
