We provide our berth holders with access to large trolleys to ensure the transfer of items such as shopping and tools is manageable from the car park to your vessel.
The trolleys are company property and must be shared amongst all berth holders across both sides of the marina.
There are 5 trolleys in total. Historically, all 5 trolleys had a £1 coin holder attached which was used to try and encourage Berth Holders to return them for others to use.
Unfortunately, that method did not appear to work and consequently over time, three trolleys which were abandoned on the pontoons found their way into the water!
The three 'lost' trolleys were consequently replaced. The new trolleys did not have £1 coin holders but came with trust from the marina that Berth Holders would, having experienced what a shortage of trolleys was like, return the new ones to their station to be used again.
Much to our dissapointment, we found a new trolley in the water this morning which was recovered along with the other three historic trolleys!
Those that can be repaired will be, however the process for borrowing our trolleys will now change.
Going forwards, the two trolleys on £1 coin holders will be free for Berth Holders to use freely. It will be down to you all to share these two trolleys and return them to their stations.
The other trolleys will now be locked and managed by the office. This means there will not be no access to the overflow trolleys over the weekend or out of hours. Please therefore think of your fellow Berth Holders and return the other two trolleys promptly after use.
If you wish to use an overflow trolley please follow the instructions below:
Go to the office between 9am - 5pm.
You can request use of a trolley, which will require a £5 cash deposit.
Your name, boat name and time taken will be noted in the diary and a 2 hour slot will be allocated for you.
You must return the trolley to its station within the 2 hour period and alert the office who will return your deposit and lock the trolley back up for the next user.
If you need to use the trolley for longer than 2 hours, please let the office know.
