HENGIST CREW GET BACK TOGETHER FOR TV SHOW.

Hengist crew

Above shows the crew with presenter Julie Peasgood.

 

THE crew of former Folkestone ferry the Hengist have been re-united for the first time since the ship stopped running from the harbour.

Ten members of crew led by captain Sid Bridgewater hooked up at the "Ship Inn" at Folkestone harbour where they were being filmed for a new television series.

The Hengist and its sister ship the Horsa plied the Channel routes from Folkestone and Dover to France and Belgium. Party of your Life, presented by Julie Peasgood will air on Meridian from Thursday November 7 at 7.30pm.

The Folkestone show focuses on the great storm in 1987 when the crew were at sea. The order in which the seven-show series will run has yet to be confirmed.
