Lost and Found.

Pair of childrens beach shoes found on the raft Saturday 9th August, Contact us if they are yours

Watch out for the Dredger !

Please keep well clear of any dredger that makes its way through the water-ski area. It is a big ship in a small channel and if you fall off or stop in front of it, it is limited in its ability to manoeuvre.
