Ships Blog 3rd March 2023

Morning and welcome to the Friday Ships Blog. Our lock closure for annual maintenance finished on Tuesday 28th February, a slight delay caused by some supply issues. Cabling and trenchwork at the marina are ongoing although the majority has now been backfilled in the main marina basin. Work at the entrance to the marina is ongoing and the route into the marina will be slightly different from present. We apologise for any inconvenience caused. If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to Contact the Control Tower.

Easter is on Friday 7th April and is relatively early this year. We have already taken bookings for that weekend and others through to the August bank holiday!

The nine new apartments being built at the entrance to the marina will be ready for sale and occupation within approximately four to five weeks time. Sales agents will be appointed shortly.

This weekends lockmaster’s are Rob Devonshire (days) and Andy Howard (night watch). Finally the weather is definitely looking colder next week with the potential for some snow particularly from Tuesday through to Thursday. Stay warm and have a good weekend.
