The famous Reg
This is to announce another sad death - Reg Barter - who was one of our founder members and who did so much to promote the use of the river and the riverside in Greenwich. Reg - like many of us - was shocked at how the pace of regeneration meant that the working river was simply ignored and forgotten. He was one of the moving forces behind the preservation of the Massey Shaw and the tug, Swiftstone. He always had a new and a bright idea - he will be sadly missed.
