From 'The Old Harkers Arms' Facebook page-
Some lovely support from the guys at the Bluebirdproject who it seems, think we are madder than they are...
The engineers have done their work now it's down to Captain Mike Skinner (the good looking one in the background) and the Harkers crew to power the raft down the Dee River tomorrow morning at 10:30am
