Woman selflessly helps desperate father facing tragedy with Fuzz

A dangerous friend

My heart goes out to the families and friends of those who died when a small boat carrying six people overturned close to Pharoah’s Island at Shepperton.

Lucky numbers all round

When 74-year-old John Molnar put a £2 charity donation into the bowl on Shepperton-based Bridge Marine’s stand at the London Boat Show, to give himself the chance of winning an outboard motor, he wasn’t terribly hopeful about his chances.

A marine makeover

When Nicky and David Prior bought the Bridge Marine boatyard in June 1984, it was a rundown wreck of a place.

Jenny’s happy to be at the helm

Being a woman in a man's world is never easy – but when the 'world' is that of boats and things nautical, it presents an even bigger difficulty. But that's a challenge boatyard boss Jenny Beagle, who runs Bridge Marine in Shepperton, has been happy to meet since she took over the business from her parents in 1998.
