Events for our customers

October 4, 2016
We have had several very successful events this season. From Barbecues through to sailing races. Including Barts Bash on 18th September when 18 vessels locked out in the morning to take part, building on the success of last years event.
However the most recent event was “A talk through time”
On a wet and windy evening in Whitehaven, nearly 50 berth holders braved the elements to enjoy nibbles and wine, hosted by Sharon and Denver at Wellington Bistro before a historical presentation based on the development of Whitehaven and West Cumbria.

 “A Talk through time” was a pictorial exploration of the West Cumbria, split in two segments. The first focused on the history of Whitehaven over the last 100 years, with particular emphasis on the part played by the harbour in the industrial and social development of the town. The second half covered a wider geographical area and looked at a range of industry including mining, farming and the more recent nuclear developments.

The speakers were Gerard Richardson and Ivor Nicholas who have collaborated on four books comprising decades of images taken by Ivor Nicholas  during his career as a photographic journalist in the area.

The Wellington Bistro  are now participants in our Berth Holders Loyalty Club Card and offer 10% off for all annual berth holders.  Why not pop in for lunch or afternoon tea and cake and make use of your new discount.

The event was a great success and everyone seemed to find it enjoyable as well as informative.

Thank you to everyone who attended.
