Final Docklands Networking Lunch

28 Mar 2018

Final Docklands Networking Lunch Image

After nine years, the final Docklands Networking Lunch was held the Mission to Seafarers on Friday, March 16.

28 guests attended, with many taking advantage of a personal tour by mission chief manager Sue Dight.

The group had earlier heard from mission chair Neil Edwards, who said the organisation was currently better placed than ever to face the future with certainty.

The building turns 100 this year, and Mr Edwards predicted that the organisation would still be serving the needs of visiting seafarers on the site in another 100 years.

Docklands News editor Shane Scanlan said the quarterly lunches would be discontinued because of falling levels of interest. However, he said, lunches could still be organised in the future around special announcements.

The first lunch was held on August 31, 2009 at Berth in NewQuay and was attended by 30 guests. Over the next nine years, the numbers have ebbed and flowed, with the highest number being 90.
