The commissioning service for the new ambulance boat will now be held on Saturday, 2nd May at 3pm. All are welcome to attend. Tourist accommodation in Macduff is limited, so if you would like to attend but would prefer to stay overnight, we suggest that you contact the Tourist Information Centre in Banff (tel. – 01261 812 419) to book accommodation.
Lovemore, the engineer who will be looking after the boat when it reaches Malawi and is put into service, will be arriving in Scotland near the end of April to attend the sea trials and familiarise himself with the vessel.
After the commissioning service, the boat will be loaded into a container during the week commencing 4th May to begin its journey to Lake Malawi.
