Reunion for Wisbech boat builders
Former boat builders travelled across the world to attend a reunion in Walsoken.
Workers had come from Scotland, Canada and Germany to attend a reunion of the Dagless Ltd Boat Builders at the Balck Bear. The firm, which was based in Wisbech, employed more than 100 people to manufacture yachts between 1959 and 1979. The business was founded by builder Jim Dagless and built 50ft to 88ft yachts. Graham Hutton, 73, organised the reunion, which was attended by nearly 80 people. He was delighted to see so many former colleagues, who are pictured above at the event.
