Anniversary year celebrations begin in style

The Guild kicked off its 30th anniversary year celebrations in grand style in February by hosting a Thames river boat cruise and dinner. The boat, the Thames Princess, departed the dock at ExCeL on the evening of the second day of the Motorhome, Caravan and Camping show. One hundred industry guests tucked into cocktails and canapés as the boat slipped her mooring at 7pm to the sound of an on board jazz band.

A silver service three course meal followed during which boat took us up river, past the Thames barrier and O2 arena, before sailing under Tower Bridge and into the Pool of London. Following the meal many guests visited the upper deck to see and photograph unrivalled views of London’s night time skyline. Eventually we turned round and headed downstream to Canary Wharf where two vintage Routemaster buses stood waiting to take us back to ExCeL.

It was an evening the like of which the Guild has never seen before, and may not see again for some years. We owe a huge debt of gratitude to the sponsors who helped us to stage this magnificent event and to keep the ticket price affordable.

Sponsors – Bailey Caravans, Dometic, Haymarket Consumer Media, Miriad Products.
