From the Alfred Corry Lifeboat Museum

I AM pleased to tell you that building work on the extension will commence in October/ November so that the heavy work can take place before the winter really sets in. With the end of school term we have been busy receiving school parties and role-play acting but our concrete floor is very hard and we are most grateful to Southwold Carpets for their kind gift of two large pieces of thick felt underlay, also to St Felix School for their kind donation of three large blue PE crash mats, which is just what we needed to create a safe blue sea under the model boat which plays an important part in the role-play sessions. We plan to hold our annual

Bric-a-Brac Sale at the Museum over the Bank Holiday weekend August 24th, 25th and 26th. A wide selection of new and pre-loved items, unwanted gifts, DVDs, books and much more will be on display, and on Sunday 25th and Monday 26th there will be a tombola. Please note these dates in your diary and do please come along and enjoy yourself and help us with this big fund raising push for the extension. Finally, once again our Curator seeks the help of Old Southwoldians. He has an undated newspaper cutting reporting on the ‘Harbour Mudlarks Annual Supper held at the Harbour Inn. The chairman was Mr P C Coveney, and entertainment including songs, violin, whistling and accordion was provided by some well known names associated with the Alfred Corry: F Goldsmith May, W May, F Upcraft, E Newson, R Palmer, E Palmer, D Palmer, B Palmer, G May and John Tooke with Percy Girling at the piano.

The evening was arranged

by John Tooke, but who were the ‘Harbour Mudlarks’? The fact that it was the ‘annual’ supper suggests that it was it an organised society and from the names it must have taken place at least 100 years ago. Do any of our readers remember, or know anything about, the Harbour Mudlarks? We should be very grateful for any assistance our readers can give us in resolving this conundrum. We look forward to seeing you over the Bank Holiday weekend.

Can I please appeal for the gift of good quality paperback fiction. We have a good stock of hardback books but paperback novels for reading on the beach prove very popular and are in short supply. Thank you.
