    I was horrified to read in the recent Coast magazine that this historic yard is in danger of closing and the nation losing those very precious skills, I assume The National Trust and/or English Heritage has been approached to help save this unique resource.

    Only esterday I saw how the NT had saved the last spade maker in Northern Ireland. He was continuing the ctaft and selling the very special spades he was making.

    TF1 News, leading French television, is very keen on doing a feature piece for its weekly prime time news programme on the Standard Quay.

    The aim of the filming is the present our viewers the Standard Quay, its history, Craftsmen,
    We would like to film the restoration project on the quay, the workshops, the shipwrighting apprentices, skilled craftsmen at work…

    TF1 is France’s premier broadcasting network and broadcasts to some 500,000 Britons currently living in France.

    Regular correspondence from our British viewers highlights their interests in and demand for information on the UK, which we provide. Furthermore, there are approximately 300,000 French people living in London, around 400,000 in the UK as a whole. In addition, TF1 broadcasts globally to the French speaking world (Belgium, Luxembourg, Monaco, Switzerland and North African countries).

    It has frequently been noted that the London bureau of TF1 promotes, through its balance and professional reporting, many positive aspects and developments within the UK to our worldwide audience.

    Yours sincerely,
