The organisers of North Queensferry’s Boat and Harbour Festival have rightly been receiving plaudits for another successful event this year – with praise even reaching the Scottish Parliament.
On Thursday 6th October local MSP Helen Eadie posted a motion praising the organisers: “*S4M-01027 Helen Eadie: Applause for North Queensferry Boat Club Volunteers—That the Parliament congratulates North Queensferry Boat Club on hosting its second Boat and Harbour Festival on 28 August 2011; applauds the efforts of the members of the boat club, led by Gordon Scobie, to organise what was considered such a successful event despite the strong winds; hopes that the volunteers who have created such a special event in the west of Fife will go from strength to strength and that the skills of boatbuilding and repair will thrive under what it sees as a superb team of volunteers.
“Recognises the contribution of the fishermen and the Scottish Fisheries Museum in teaching the public about their work through making a 100-year-old herring drifter accessible to the general public, and applauds the boat club for reviving the traditional skiff race between North and South Queensferry and making it an annual event in future.”
