Dear Berth holders,

It has been fantastic to see so many of you back on site over the last few weeks. Thank you for continuing to follow the regulations on site to keep the marina Covid-19 free. Here’s hoping that the lifting of restrictions continues and our 2021 season brings fair weather and fair seas.

Visitors 

With summer finally on its way and with some Covid restrictions being lifted we would like to remind visiting boats that due to a shortage of spare berths booking ahead is essential.

Please either send an email to: marina@amble.co.uk or use the form on the website.

Remember to include your Name, Address, Boat Name, Make and Model and required dates. Calling en route from outside the Harbour may result in disappointment.

Dredging

Environmental consultants from Hexham, Envision, completed a preliminary study of Alnmouth Bay on our behalf in May. Their results will be used to prove beyond reasonable doubt that our dredging practise does not harm the fragile eco systems as required by our dredging license. The mud from the marina basin is simply being returned to where it would naturally end up if the marina was not present.

Water Supply and Drinking Water

Over the next few weeks there will be intermittent interruption to the water supply on site. We are up grading the entire site to comply with new regulations from Northumbria Water. Kirklands from Blyth are undertaking the essential work.

The new regulations mean that drinking water will only be supplied from the fuel pontoon. All other hoses on site will no longer be drinking water. 

Northumbria Water have agreed that the hoses can remain for now although this may change in the future. There are currently no marina suppliers making the galvanised hose reels (the last two suppliers having closed) so please look after the current stand pipes and reels whilst we search for a replacement.

This work has been planned since September last year but unfortunately availability of Northumbria Water authorised companies and tanks has meant we were unable to complete the work earlier. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Summer Berth Holders Event

Love Dough Pizza who serve excellent pizzas from their old Citroen van in the Market Place Car Park every Saturday will be serving berth holders on Saturday 17th July from 1700 to 2000 (please note timings are to be confirmed). Please bring your our own drinks and keep fingers crossed for good weather.

Finally I will be away for the beginning of June for a small operation which will hopefully improve my eyesight but have no fear as I will be leaving you in the capable hands of Diane, Mick, Steve, Will and Margaret.

Kind regards

Karl
