WHAT’S IN the name

Canal Boat - - Me & My Boats -

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.”
