Shower /Toilet Facilities – The new flooring will be laid within the next few weeks then all that remains to be done is some detailing.

We now have our own facebook page. This is updated regularly so that you are able to see what goes on at the marina on an almost daily basis. As well as the daily goings on other information such as new opening times will be posted on there.
Office Opening Times – Although the marina is staffed all day Monday to Friday until 5:30 pm the office hours have changed. It is now staffed between the hours of 09:00 am and 16:30 pm Monday to Friday and 10:00 am until 13:00 pm on Saturdays.
New CCTV – We have had installed a new high definition CCTV system using leading edge technology. Our Marina now has ANPR cameras situated around the site and the new system comprises of features such as facial recognition, motion detection and alarm activation in order to maximise security.
Wi-Fi - In addition to the CCTV system we have also introduced WI-FI for marina customers. As this is a new service we are offering all customers a free one week trial so that we can collate feedback and make improvements if necessary to ensure we are providing the best WI-FI service possible.
Shower /toilet facilities - We have recently overhauled our onsite shower and toilet facilities which are available for use by all our customers. Once the flooring is replaced the overhaul will be complete.
Pontoon Works - We have replaced and upgraded many of our pontoons over the last few years and still work continues. A large percentage of our pontoons have now been upgraded using an anti-slip fibreglass marine grating the result being a much more attractive aesthetic and most importantly safer access to moorings.
Electricity Supply – We are looking at the possibility of upgrading our current electricity supply system with a wireless one. It is early days but our aim is to have a system that will automatically allocate each customer’s unit consumption to their individual account regardless of which socket they plug into.
Offers – Look out for marina offers that will be found under the ‘Services’ tab on our home page. Currently we are running a Winter Lay-up offer which ends 31st March 2018. On the same page we also have a ‘tick box form’ which you can fill out in order to request prices for Lay-up and Re- commissioning services. This form is for services provided all year round and our pricing will reflect any valid current discounts.
