As we see out the end of a year that brought unprecedented challenges, 2020 has been a difficult for everyone, with various developments and sorrows that we have had to endure.
My final newsletter of 2020 offers some cheer and to inform you that work of the Steamship Shieldhall Charity has not stopped and neither has the ongoing maintenance work onboard Shieldhall.
We all hope for a swift and safe return to normality in 2021, but until then I would like to reassure volunteers that whenever we are permitted, then work will continue on making the ship ready for the 2021 sailing season.
Finally, I would like to reiterate my thanks to all of the volunteers and also extend that sense of gratitude to all of their families.
On behalf of the Board of Trustees I would like to say Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all.
