DCR EXECUTIVE PRODUCER HAMISH BEAR OUT & ABOUT AROUND DUNOON
Written by Archie Fergusson on 21/06/2014
Now that summer seems to be here and with more and more events being announced for the coming weekends DCR Executive Producer Hamish Bear decided to leave the Control desk and have a stroll through the Town to see how some of the this weekends events were getting on.
A visit to his old friend Dr Bike at the Dunoon Red Cross Hall who has been celebrating Britain’s biggest bike fix in the only way he knows how—Fixing bikes of course.
This is Dr Bike with David from West Coast Window Cleaners who was visiting Dr Bike to have his incredible Mountain Bike checked over although not the best form of transport for a Window Round
Dr Bike has had a busy week at the Dunoon Link Club, Edward Street were he repaired and got road worthy lots of bicycle’s all ready for the summer.
The link Club folk where also at the Dunoon Red Cross with their charity stalls with Tombola, Raffles and of course Home Baking table.
Hamish was particular looking forward to going on down to Dunoon’s pier to see the arrival of the last sea –going paddle steamer in the World the Waverley. Magnificently restored with towering funnels, timber decks, gleaming varnish and brass and the sound of those mighty engines.
Quite a few folk had the same idea and of course it wasn’t long before Hamish found some new friends including brother and sister Olivia and Ben from Dunoon.
Hamish Olivia and Ben enjoyed listening to the pipers on board the Waverly who were entertaining passengers.
Hamish also bumped into Happy Dayz Paul Kerr who asked him to remind folk about next Saturday
Just to remind everyone next Saturday 28th June 2014 is the The Clyde Swim Charity Challenge
and everyone is invited to meet and welcome the swimmers as they complete the swim.
Paul also asked to remind all the swimmers
that the check in for competitors is at 11.30am in the Queens hall,
after the check in its over to the linkspan to board RiBs at 1220
The swim will start at 1300/ 1.00pm at the Cloch Lighthouse, first swimmers are expected to walk ashore about 40 minutes later.
