BLESSING OF THE FERRIES & NAMING OF THE NEW VESSEL
The ferries will be blessed by Rev. Jules, the new vicar for the Torridge Coastal Mission Community at the beginning of the ferry session at the Appledore Slip on Saturday 15 April 2023 at approximately 1330h. The shanty singers, the Applecorers will be joining us on the slip to celebrate another ferry season.
In addition, the ferry company, thanks to a very generous benefactor, has a brand new ferry identical to Sheila M, which will be named. So, a double ceremony this year.
The blessing and the naming will be repeated at Instow Pier at approximately 14h including the Applecorers.
Please come along to participate in the blessing and naming of the ferries – an important event in the ferry calendar.
