WHAT’S IN the name
JOYCE STEWART TELLS US: “We began saving up for a narrowboat but were still short of our target when a much-loved aunt died and left us some money. Her name was Amy and she had been a milliner, making hats for Ascot and the like, hence a hat is featured above the name. She would have been pleased with how we’d spent her money. Amy means ‘loved one’ and our boat is truly loved, as was the aunt.”
