Morning all and Happy New to everyone. Hope you enjoyed your Christmas and are looking forward to the new season. Weather wise bit of a mixed bag here at Shotley over the next few days. We have some rain coming with a number of very windy days. The upside is that the temperatures remain quite mild for this time of year.

Other news, a new water main is being installed by Anglian Water. The trench work has begun this week at the North end of the marina along the north side of the roadway. This means that parking will at times be restricted on the north bank side of the road i.e. on the shingle. The general advise is to park on the tarmac beside the marina and to beware of blocking any machinery working in the area. We hope any inconvenience will be minimized with the work scheduled to be completed by mid February. For any advise or to answer any queries please do not hesitate to contact the Control Tower on 01473 788982.
