15 Apr Double Celebration for Poole Quay Boat Haven
Poole Quay Boat Haven has had two causes for celebration this week.
The first, welcoming visitors back to the Marina following the easement of restrictions on leisure boating. The second, welcoming them back exactly 20 years on from when the Marina first opened and welcomed its first visitors in 2001.
Kerrie Gray, Marina Manager, Poole Harbour Commissioners said: “We’re thrilled to be welcoming visitors back to Poole Quay Boat Haven, and it feels particularly meaningful that we can do so on our 20th anniversary. We are looking forward to celebrating this landmark anniversary with our berth holders and visitors.”
Poole Quay Boat Haven is owned and operated by Poole Harbour Commissioners (PHC). The health and welfare of customers and their workforce remain a top priority for PHC, and additional safety measures have been implemented in time for the Marina to reopen.
Kerrie also commented: “We have put additional safety measures in place to prevent the potential spread of COVID-19. Having been through this process once already, we are confident of the success of these measures.
Floor markings, posters, and hand sanitisation stations are in place and we urge all visitors to maintain a 2m social distance wherever possible. We’ve also installed protective screens, but to limit the numbers in our reception area, we are requesting that wherever possible, payment is made before arrival either online or over the phone.”
