May Lunch – Presentation on Trinity House
22 May 2019 @ 12:00 - 15:30Free
Trinity House presentation with film and pictures.
Have you ever wondered who looks after the major lighthouses around England, Wales and the Channel Islands? How did they came to be there in the first place?
This historic organisation, incorporated by Royal Charter by Henry VIII in the 1500s, is still here today as a vital part of Britain’s maritime community.
In addition to owning and operating lighthouses, lightvessels, beacons and buoys to keep safe all mariners at sea around our shores, Trinity House is called in to mark—and clear if required—wrecks, help develop state of the art electronic navigation tools for vessels of all sizes to overcome the vulnerabilities of GPS, and to act as Nautical Assesors in Admiralty Court cases.
Add to that a sizeable maritime fraternity which regularly advises on current maritime issues and future opportunities, and a charitable side that donates in excess of £5m a year to worthy maritime causes, and you start to get a picture of the current day Trinity House.
Our lunch tickets cost £50 per person.
