Recycling – as a Club we would like to be as active as possible with regard to recycling and to start things off David Warner, our Clubhouse Manager, has installed 2 recycling boxes on the ground floor under the defibrillator. Please make every effort to use them.
Mooring Chains – those of you who have moorings will be fully aware of your responsibilities to manage and maintain your mooring tackle. However, we still do see some pretty poor examples from time to time and there is one such example in the bar at the moment.
This chain was taken from a mooring when the boat attached to it broke loose – you will not be too surprised when you see the chain.
Luckily the boat was very quickly rescued by 2 diligent club members who happened to be around at the time and no damage was caused, but, it could have been a very different story.
We cannot emphasise enough the need to ensure you have appropriate mooring tackle that is fit for purpose and that it is regularly checked. If you have any questions or concerns please contact Brian Rogers, Mooring Master, on 07756976565.
