Marina News – March 2018
New Arrival! – We would like to welcome our new team member, Jason. Along with his nautical knowledge and great enthusiasm he is already proving to be a valuable member of staff.
Storage – We currently have a 40ft container available for rent. Please call 01304 614 813 for more details. If you would like us to contact you when a 10, 20, 30 or 40ft container becomes available please let us know and we will add you to our waiting list.
Shower /Toilet Facilities – The new flooring has at last been laid! Please remember that dogs are not allowed in either the shower room or toilet.
Website – The website is still a work in progress but if you have a peek you will see that we have uploaded new prices that are effective from the 1st April 2018 until the 31st of March 2019.
Spring Offer – Our Spring offer has now been uploaded to the website. You may notice that it is advertised for new or returning customers only but that does not mean that we cannot offer our current customers a fair deal if they wish to have their vessel lifted out of the water.
Marina improvements – We are concentrating on areas of the marina that need re-organising and at the same time clearing of unnecessary rubbish and abandoned effects. In doing so we feel that we are setting an example and hope that it encourages others to keep their areas clear of debris.
Access Road – You have probably already noticed that there have been changes to the access road configuration over the last few months. There is now a point where a blind corner has been created. Therefore we ask that you take extra care on the approach to the marina and when leaving the Marina. We also ask that you keep to the left at all times and drive at a sensible speed.
Pontoon progress – Another phase of new pontoons and walkways is now complete. The next phase is well under way which when placed in position will give us an uninterrupted stretch of new pontoons.
Office Extension – We are at present increasing our office space by adding an extension. This will be positioned to the rear of the current office. The idea is that we have a separate area for multifunctional use.
Laundry Service – We now offer a laundry service for liveaboards. For more details and pricing information please contact the office on 01304 614 813 or simply pop in.
Neighbourly Love! – Sandwich Marina has challenged Sandwich Sailing and Motor Boat Club to a Ten Pin Bowling competition. The date and venue is yet to be confirmed so if you wish to join one of the teams please contact us on 01304 614 813.
Winter Olympics – Swimming is not on the Winter Olympics agenda, the reason for which was recently discovered by one of our customers who took an unscheduled dip. Therefore we would like to remind our customers that we are here to help and rather than put yourselves at risk just ask one of our team. Also please take extra care on the pontoons during this wintery spell.
Winter Time Advice – We hope everyone is keeping warm through the cold spell. Our advice is to use gas appliances/heaters where possible as oppose to overloading your electricity supply. We also advise everyone to keep their water tanks topped up on board and not to leave hoses and taps running.
Port & Haven Fees – Sandwich Port & Haven Commissioners have increased the Conservancy Fees for reasons which are outlined on their website. For more information or to make a payment please visit http://www.sandwichphc.uk/
