Jubilee flotilla on the Thames

A thousand boats gathered on the Thames on Sunday 3 June, in celebration of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee

It was the largest flotilla in modern times with rowing boats, working boats and pleasure vessels of all shapes and sizes. The flotilla stretched for more than 12 miles, and proved extremely popular – with three boats applying for every place. Among the boats chosen was Knot Arf, owned by Andrew Bernstein, immediate past commodore of the Thames Motor Yacht Club and Master of London-based Lodge of Enterprise No. 6494.

A Lift for Bowls Club

Lodge of Enterprise No. 6494, which meets at the Mansfield Bowling Club in Highgate, North London, found they had a problem – they met on the first floor and elderly members needed help to mount the stairs. So – as befits their name – they showed enterprise and donated a stairlift to the club, which now helps bowls club members as well as those of the lodge.
