To celebrate many a special occasion, including our Patron, His Royal Highness Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh’s 95th birthday, The Queens 90th, and also our changing of the guard at officer level, we would like to (excuse the pun) push the boat out this year and offer an evening on board the S.L. Streatley, a traditional coal fired steam boat built in 1905.
The trip along the Thames will depart from French Brothers Boatyard, Old Windsor, on Friday, 17th June 2016 at 18.00 hrs and will last approximately 4 hours, returning around 22.00 hours.
The cost of the whole evening will be £33.50 per non-member and £30.00 per paid up member. This will include parking, a complimentary drink upon arrival, the boat trip and a ham and cheese ploughman’s supper. A pay bar will be available throughout the evening.
We do hope you will be able to join us for this trip along the Thames, together with we hope, the Mayor of Runnymede, and other members, business leaders, councillors, supporters and volunteers from within the Egham and Thorpe community, to help make this a most enjoyable summer evening get-together.
Furthermore, we intend to have a Grand Prize Draw kindly supported by our good friends Barclays Bank on the evening to help provide valuable funds for this year’s show. If you are able to donate a raffle prize, this would be much appreciated and even more so if you could also arrange for any prizes to be delivered to one of the committee members by Friday, 10th June.
Attached below, you will find a booking form which we would kindly ask you to complete and return to Emma Travers by Friday, 10th June, along with your payment. Tickets will be allocated on a first come first served basis and final confirmation will be sent to you via email.
We hope to see you there.

Record crowds flocked to the 157th Egham Royal Show last weekend, when warm weather and live coverage from BBC Surrey helped to generate a great atmosphere on the Showground at Whitehall Lane in Egham.
The highlight of the first day was the re-appearance of the 8 Magna Carta Giants of Liberty, which had last been seen entertaining Her Majesty The Queen at Runnymede on 15 June, on the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta.
