Activity on the River Nene is certainly beginning to pick up, and last week we had a good number of over night visitors which was really thrilling. Not only did their arrival give us the chance to meet face to face, (which is something that both John and I thoroughly enjoy), but it also gave us the opportunity to chat through our plans and aspirations for White Mills Marina and of course show our guests how the development has progressed over the past 10 months.
The feedback we got was incredibly encouraging, with all of them promising to call in on their return journey later in the Summer. Even as I sit here typing this blog, yet another gorgeous narrowboat has cruised through Lock 9 on the River Nene, colourfully painted and looking glorious in the Spring sunshine.
Darla Rose the vintage coffee caravan had a successful first day on Sunday, with both the homemade cakes and fabulous range of "proper" coffee proving incredibly popular. We are now looking forward to Darla Rose returning this Sunday and every Sunday through May; we hope word will spread and the delightful little vintage caravan will become increasingly popular for boaters, walkers and cyclists.
We are now gearing up for Crick Boat show at the end of the month when we will be having our very own stand in the Waterways World Boating Marquee. If you are planning to go to the three day event, then please do come and look us up we are on stand number 93 and will not just be waving the flag for White Mills but the entire River Nene!
Finally we have another Open Weekend this weekend (7th and 8th May) , so if you haven't popped in for a while then please do come and see us, things have certainly changed.
See you soon!
