When asked to support this year's St. Peter's Fete on July 1 with Tyne boat trips, St. Peter's Marina owner Brian Hunt did not hesitate. Not only did he volunteer himself, but Don and Dave too. The trips last year were very popular and a flotilla of boats ran from St. Peter's Marina up to Newcastle Quayside, before returning. For many Fete-goers, this was their first time on the river and the first time they had seen St. Peter's and neighbouring Newcastle Quayside from the River Tyne. Many are already looking forward to July 1, Fete Day and sailing on the Tyne. The timetable for sailings will be published closer to Fete Day.
