Looking forward to the coming season. If you would like to berth your boat with us please let us know as soon as possible. An early payment discount is available for all customers returning their signed contract before 15th March 2018.
Our Wise Hoist has now been in operation since November, we have been overwhelmed by the response and have carried out over 40 lifts to date. Our plans for 2018 will see us build on this success with more cradles, more stands, more electrical and fresh water points.
In late January we altered our car park layout beyond the hoist to significantly increase boat storage space. We still have pedestrian access to Amble and HGV access through the gates.
Car Parking. We are introducing a berth holders parking permit from 1st April 2018. Visitors will be asked to park in our Market Place car park so that we can strike a balance between having enough space for our boatyard and annual customers. The permit is free and valid for each annual customer and available from either the office.
After 25 years of service Linda Sweeney will be retiring at the end of April. Linda is looking forward to a well deserved trip to Australia in 2019, playing more golf and spending more time with her grandchild. We obviously wish Linda all the very best and thank her for her fantastic work, she will be missed. In the interim Claire Brunton will be helping out in the office whilst we search for a full time replacement.
2018 has a few events already planned. Berth holders are invited on 14th April to launch the new season with bacon sandwiches and drinks from 12.00 – 15.00. This will also be Linda’s final weekend at work and will be an opportunity for us all to wish her well and give her a good send off!
Our second event will be on Saturday 26th May with the team from Sea&Soil cooking up some treats on the barbecue. This will be a ticketed event so please let us know if you would like to come. Our chosen charity for the year is St Oswalds Hospice, there will be a raffle and collection tins on the day should you wish to donate to this worthwhile cause.
