The Charterhouse Returns Committee

April 19, 2009

After our initial visit in January,  Cllr Richard Davies,  Cllr Gwilym Price ( the Mayor of Fishguard & Goodwick from May 2009] and Cllr Bob Wheatly  members of the town centenary group called a meeting of all interested groups.

The meeting was called at the Royal Oak on Fishguard Square. [the photo below of Royal Oak nearer the time of the Charterhouse’s initial visit!]

As a result of the meeting, the decision was made to initiate the return of the Charterhouse.

It was fitting therefore to name the project – Charterhouse Returns.

Vice-Charman – Gwilym Price [Mayor]

Secretary – Bob Wheatley

Treasurer – Chris Williams

It was descided to visit the Charterhouse on the 22nd April.

Our first visit to the Marian (Charterhouse)

April 19, 2009

As a result of a meeting called by Phil Rees at the Pendre Inn in January 2009 it was descided to send two members to Bangor to renew Fishguard & Goodwick’s contact with the Charterhouse!

After 4 hours of driving, in fog most of the time, we arrived alongside the Charterhouse [sorry Marian]  at midday.

The weather was equal to the summers we don’t seem to have! The tide was full and the water calm as can be seen in the photographs on the main pages.

Waiting for us were three generations of the Lomas family – Neil and his wife Anne, his daughter Judith Lomas Taylor, and his two grandchildren Ruby and Dougie.

John spent his time evaluating the technical aspects of the Marian while I was taking photographs of  more general views.

As Marian was afloat we visited the  ‘sister ship’ on the quay nearby, to view the position of the ‘prop’.

After a two hour stay, we returned to Fishguard, and reported our ‘survey’ to the whole of the Fishguard lifeboat crew in their weekly ‘tutorial’ at The Ship Inn at Lower Town.
