Work starts on site clearance.

Volunteers from both clubs made a start clearing the hedgerow to make way for the site entrance on the weekend of 6 and 7 December 2014 as seen in the photographs on the right. (Click on picture and use mouse scroll wheel to change picture.)


On Monday 2 November 2015 digging out of the site got underway and progress through to 15 May 16 can be seen in these photos which have been kindly supplied by Ian Kilpatrick and Mike Street.  The muck-shift is now complete and the boat storage space is looking really good.

While the pictures will run automatically the mouse scroll wheel can be used to change photographs if desired. This feature is particularly useful for scrolling through the photos.

The Official Opening of the new Dinghy & Gig Park took place on Sunday June 12th 2016

The opening on Sunday 12th June of the Weir Quay Community Watersports Hub Club Ltd  Dinghy and Gig Park celebrated many years of hard, dedicated work by members from both the Sailing and Gig Clubs.  The event was, not surprisingl, well supported as seen in the accompanying photographs by courtesy of Mike Benson, Ian Kilpatrick, Graham Reed and Rosie Hinge.The slider will run through the photographs automatically or can be controlled with your mouse wheel.

Sunday 19 June 2016.

The site is occupied.

In depressingly damp conditions, especially so, given the importance and significance of the work in hand, a working party moved the dinghies from the dinghy park to the new site.  Real progress and a great credit to all involved with both the acquisition and development of the new Hub Club site over many difficult and challenging years.
