Morning all and welcome to the Friday Ships Blog. Groundwork for the new water main is almost complete and Anglian Water will commence laying the pipe work from Monday 30th January 23.

Weather wise we still seem to be in a period of relative stability and little change. This weekends forecast is for some sunshine on Saturday and a bit more overcast on Sunday. Winds generally light on Saturday but with a bit more breeze on Sunday, force 3 to 4 Westerly. Tides this weekend, Saturday 16:45 3.68m and Sunday 17:39 3.46m. duty lockmasters are Marc Gilbert days and Richard Whitby nights. Have a good weekend.
