Endeavour Returns to Leigh & Dunkirk News

The restoration of Endeavour is progressing well and on the afternoon of Friday 8th April she will return to Leigh, where work such as fixing the rigging, installing the engine and electrics and fitting the sails will be undertaken. On Saturday the 23rd April at 2.30pm, there will be a short ceremony to welcome her back, which will be held on Strand Wharf.

On the 25th May she will set sail for Dunkirk in order to be part of the wreath-laying ceremony in Dunkirk Harbour on Sunday 29th May, returning to Leigh in early June.

Alternatively, there will be a service in St. Johns Church in Church Road, Southend (behind the Royals Shopping Centre on Sunday 29th May at 11.15am which will be attended by the remaining Local Dunkirk Veterans.
