A FISHY feast fit for a queen donated by Billingsgate Fish Market will be served up to ex seafarers after a special service this weekend.

Fish from all over the world will be presented at the annual fish harvest festival at St Mary at Hill church in the City at 11am on Sunday.

The church is the parish church of Billingsgate which was based nearby before moving out to West India Docks.

Afterwards the food will then be donated to the Queen Victoria's Seamen's Rest which is based in East India Dock Road in Poplar.

It is the last seamen's mission in London and was founded in 1843 for seafarers from all over the world.
