Eyemouth team on board the 'Biscoe Kid' at the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Pageant.

Eyemouth was well represented at the spectacular, once in a lifetime, Diamond Jubilee Pageant held on the river Thames on Saturday, 2 June 2012.

EBU3A member Fay Waddell and husband Ian were accompanied on board the 'Biscoe kid', by Major Trotter, the Lord Lieutenant of Berwickshire and his wife Julia, the past and present Eyemouth Harbour Masters, Jonny Johnson and Ivan Stevenson, Mark Pentecost and his daughter Polly.

 


Fay wishes to thank all those who supported her efforts to get Eyemouth and the 'Biscoe Kid' into the Jubilee Pageant.

"It was an amazing adventure from start to finish with lots of memorable moments.  Biscoe Kid never let us down for a minute and was a great favourite with the crowd.  For me the best bit was coming down river in the procession with hundreds of thousands of people waving and cheering us on.  I'll never forget that".
