Yard Tidied Up
It was good to have a clear up this summer to ensure that we’re making the best of the space we have to benefit all out berthholders and other users of the site.
Thanks to Ben Parmenter and number of local people who assisted us in getting things in good shape, ready for the winter.
We have also been able to improve our recycling provisions on site.
Thank you Tony, Welcome John

GETTING READY FOR THE WATER
The weather is great and there’s a frantic push to get boats ready for the water. Take a look at Meryl and Rex — Meryl’s working hard with the sander, and Rex said that he’s working in a supervisory capacity!
NOTE: Make sure you’ve booked your launching dates with Doug, the lifting diary is getting busy.
The 2013 Season starts
|Just a few words to keep you all up to speed – things are starting to get going after the winter break. Boats are already going back in the water ready for this year’s great summer I think! My health journey seems to be going in the right direction due to the best modern day treatments and I am so glad to be back!We now have extra staff working with me two days a week in the shape of Tom Johnson. Tom has been around working with FACT for the past three years and now splits him time between TSL and FACT, it’s good to have him onboard – he’s a great all-rounder and a safe pair of hands. We also welcome some volunteers during the week, from a Colchester based group called GO4 Enterprises which helps young adults get back into the working world, I’m glad to have them around because we’ve done lots of site improvements.

Welcome back Doug!
Doug returned to work at the beginning of June, after a nine month period of sick leave – we’re so pleased that the medical treatment has been so effective. He’s gradually increasing his hours to full time working, and for a while will still be assisted by Paul Blyth who has helped keep TSL running during Doug’s absence. It’s great to have you back Doug – we’ve missed you such a lot!

It was only few weeks ago that we identified a number of potential new sites for yacht berths — so it’s great that Paul Blyth, our temporary manager, and Ashley Hunwick, our new yard worker, have been able to compete the first new builds so quickly.
We also plan to renovate and improve a number of redundant yacht berths this
year so that we can welcome new customers to the saltings.
