May 2013 - Alton's Schedule

April was another busy month we had a great time at the Easter Gathering at Ellesmere Port and it was great to see so many other fuel boats at the Port & catch up with their crews. Since then we've managed to do another Cheshire Run & finally over the past few days it seems like spring has finally arrived. There's lambs in the fields, ducklings on the cut & daffs & primroses on the banks & swallows in the air :-).
