Would all members who have a boat on the jetty please ensure that their boat is padlocked securely to the jetty as soon as possible. We had 2 boats removed by rough sleepers and left on the mud where they bizarrely decided to sleep in them. This resulted in a lot of time being wasted by members who went down to help and the police who also attended to talk the men involved. Thanks to those club members who attended and helped to check out all the boats and replace covers etc.
In view of all of the above, any boats that are not padlocked after 2 weeks from today will be made secure by the club and the owner will be charged for the padlock plus an admin fee.
