Firstly, good news, the Newark Heritage Barge CIO (a charity) has been able to take ownership of the LEICESTER TRADER due to the generosity of donors coupled with existing funds reserved for that purpose.

Secondly, the episode of 'Bargain Hunt' to be screened at 12.15 next Monday, 4 March will include a visit to the LT starring Anita Manning and Les Reid.
Cheers, George
