a reprieve. Due to contract re-negotiation brouhaha (see here) the commuter river bus between Putney and central London was due to end along with 2011.
However fortunately an alternative bid was submitted and just before Christmas it was announced that Complete Pleasure Boats Ltd had been awarded an operating licence.
They will be running the Henley (above in autumnal morning mists) and Viscount boats providing commuters with free tea, coffee and toast!
