Boats with Becky

Summer is nearly here and the birds know it, we've seen ducks and coots nesting, laying their eggs around the boat dock and we now have the pleasure of watching the little chicks paddling around our canal arm, they are certainly proving a big hit with visitors to the Museum.

We've recently had a visit from a group of 'Peaky Blinders wannabes' following, literally, in the footsteps of the BAFTA nominated BBC Series with Cillian Murphy, which was filmed on our Boat Dock and I have had a great time having my picture taken with 'the gang'.

In-between all of our unique visits, I had chance to catch up on some needlework and demonstrated some real tasty boat lunches. Can't be bad!

Whilst working away day to day, I'll make sure I keep taking snapshots of the daily activities around the boat dock and post a few of the best in my next blog.

Best wishes to you all and hope you can come visit me on the boats soon.

About Becky

Photo of Becky by the boat dock

Becky is one of our many costumed characters who meets & greets visitors to BCLM from all over the world.

Becky works on our boat dock and each week keeps a diary of all the new and interesting things that she discovers during her time there. She has decided it is a shame to keep all these fascinating finds to herself and would like to share with you regular updates of what happens on the BCLM boat dock.

Here is what Becky has to say about her 'Boats with Becky' Blog:

"I'm incredibly lucky to have such a wonderful view when I work. During the winter, people think that I must get cold, bored or lonely  - this couldn't be further from the truth. I have a great time at work and I can't wait to tell you about the things that happen on the dock each week. I get to enjoy traditional cooking, cleaning and watching the wildlife go by. I have regular visits from BCLM visitors, volunteers and staff, and experience warm weather, cold weather, peaceful days and exciting festivals. I will keep writing in my diary each day and take those unmissable photos so that I can share them on my new 'Boats with Becky' feature for you all to see & hear about the hidden beauty of BCLM docks"

If you are visiting BCLM  - don't forget to pop down to our boat dock and say hello to Becky.
