Ferry gets its 150,000th passenger on 29th May!
The ferry season started on 1 April 2019 and up to 25th May the two ferries had carried 149,357 passengers plus bicycles, dogs etc. The 150,000th (and 150,001th) passenger boarded on 29th May. They are Adrian and daughter Alexa Hinds-Parkinson. Adrian said "It was an absolute thrill and an honour to be the 150,000th passenger, and Alexa said the ferry trips were the highlight of her week. We have started to come every year to Appledore, and hope this trip will definitely not be our last!"
Thanks to them and all the ferry volunteers whose enthusiam and unstinting generosity make this project work so well. Next target - 200,000!
