Marina News – January 2019
Christmas Party – We would like to thank everyone who came to our Annual Christmas Bash and especially to Mr & Mrs Turner who once again very generously gave us a beautiful freshly made gateau from their very own bakery which was absolutely stunning. Thank you also for the lovely presents and cards.
Christmas Raffle – As keen supporters and volunteers of the P22 Gun Boat which is moored at Sandwich Quay we are pleased to announce that their Christmas Raffle raised £1,049.00 for the USN P22 Trust.
Current Offer – Our ‘Winter Lay-up Offer’ is still running and has proven to be even more popular than last year hence we have limited space left. However this does not mean we are unable to accommodate your needs so do please contact us.
General Maintenance – As always maintenance of the yard is ongoing in many areas but welcomed by all. Newly fenced off areas have definitely improved the site. There are still a couple of eyesore areas that are on the ‘to do’ list but overall space is being better utilised.
Stour News – Since the sinking of the Southern Queen another vessel further inland along the river Stour sank. Therefore we would like to remind boat owners to check that their ropes are fit for purpose that their vessels are moored securely, batteries charged and bilge pumps are in good working order. If any of our customers have any concerns relating to the safety of their vessel or any other, we urge you to come and see us or alternatively call us.
Keep warm this winter – Now that winter has arrived and the possibility of icy spell is on the horizon please ensure that you keep safe and warm. To all live-aboard’s please check that you have enough gas especially over the weekends. If your water pipes froze last year it may be an idea to consider alternative water sources if the temperature is due to plummet.
Safety – Above all else safety is paramount. If we encounter wet or freezing conditions please be extra cautious using pontoons and walkways.
