Ice on the marina

It is with great sadness that we must say that Angus's father — Richard Maughan passed away on Friday 29th August. Richard was instrumental in the development of Overwater and despite suffering from Motor Neurone disease for the last 3 years has continued to play an active role. As a family we will miss him more than words can say. Over and above that the world has now lost a true gentleman whose honesty and integrity was never ending. Richard's funeral will take place next Thursday (11th September) at 2pm, St James Church, Audlem. We would request your understanding for Marina staff who wish to attend.
