On March 25, The Mariners of Wight held their Annual General Meeting at the Holmwood Hotel.

The Mariners are a group of retired Merchant Navy Officers who meet regularly throughout the year to socialise and raise money for charitable causes related to seafaring.

This year’s presentations were given by the president, Captain Allan Tulloch, and Ms Georgie Hibberd, partner of the late Tony McGinnity, founder of the group.

The recipients were Cowes Sea Cadets, of TS Osborne, and Ryde Sea Cadets, of TS Royal George.

A cheque for £800 was presented to Carron Snagge, of TS Osborne, and a further cheque of £800 was presented to Linden Softley, of TS Royal George.

A presentation of £200 was also made to Peter Goldberg, trustee of the British Sailors Society, towards their appeal for support for Ukraine.
