Heaven knows where the last six weeks have gone, I can't believe that the last blog was written on 22nd July! Time flies when you are busy, and it certainly has. The building of the facilities building has certainly kept us on our toes. We have also had a good turn out from boaters who visited our stand at Crick and have either taken the plunge and bought a boat and are coming to stay at White Mills or quite simply want a change of scenery and fancy the more tranquil setting of the River Nene. Either way bookings are definitely on the increase. We have also had a good number of overnight visitors which is always lovely, and since we became officially involved with the Friends of the River Nene as a point of call for people to join up, we have had lots of boaters keen to explore the River Nene drop in too.
Oh yes, our camping and caravanning site has proved popular too, with everyone of our campers promising to return when we have hook ups organised next year. We even had a lovely family from Holland to stay for a week, they loved Earls Barton and all the surrounding villages.
Our community continues to thrive, and we have to say a big thank you to Pete (nb Tregantle) for adding the final piece of the jigsaw to our BBQ which is now up and running. Situated in the camping area of the marina amongst the trees, looking out towards Whiston church we feel sure it is going to be well used.
