Mermaid Landlord Thanks Gry Maritha Crew

Gry Maritha

A St Mary’s landlord has offered to treat the Gry Maritha crew to a Christmas meal as thanks for their dedication in sailing in rough seas during the year.

Ray Brown of the Mermaid said he and Irene wanted to show their thanks after islanders posted their messages of gratitude on the Radio Scilly Facebook page.

Ray says they have done well for us all year and it’s unfair that they get criticised when the weather is bad.

Paul Stevens is the master of the Gry and will take his four colleagues for the meal when it’s quieter in the New Year.

Paul says it’s nice to be appreciated for the work they put in and says it’s ironic that he and his team will be bringing the food for it over!
