First anniversary for ferry

Service connecting two villages has carried more than 12,500 passengers.

THE reinstated Appledore Instow ferry celebrated its first anniversary last week.

June 25 marked a year to the day that the first launch took place and since then the team of volunteers and skippers has provided a service between the two villages.

Having only missed a few days due to bad weather, the ferry has carried more than 12,500 passengers in its first year.

The ferry receives funding from local businesses and individuals, as well as from the Big Lottery Fund.
