Peter Lawrence Remembered

DSC_8047

Over one hundred "Friends of PGL" gathered by the River Wye on Saturday August 20th to remember Peter Lawrence, the company's founder, who died a year ago. Staff and company contacts past and present attended and the guests of honour were Peter's widow, Lucile, and his sister, Jennifer.

Many participated in a memorial canoe trip from Hole-in-the-Wall to Ross, which was part of the original holiday route that Peter first used in the 1950s. It was a lovely afternoon and there were lots of laughs, pranks and enjoyment en route. Great Britain Under 23 canoeist, Andrew Hadfield, joined in, having first experienced canoeing at PGL with his primary school.

The day ended with a pig roast in glorious evening sunshine on the river bank at Ross Rowing Club. There were reminiscences galore, a toast to Peter's memory and the announcement that donations had raised 2,000 to help children from families on income support to enjoy PGL adventures in the future.

Below are some scenes from the day, starting at Hole in the Wall and ending at Ross Rowing Club with a toast to Peter.
