Janet's Blog – January 2022

Janet's Blog – January 2022 The marina has actually been really quite busy throughout the autumn and into the winter. We managed to survive two members of staff being off at different times with the dreaded covid and we've all been keeping the lateral flow test industry busy by testing, testing

Janet's Blog – October 2021

Where did the summer go?  In fact where did this year disappear to? I suppose it is true that time becomes relatively shorter the older you get (think about that one). It's been so lovely to see everyone back on their boats and enjoying the season – even if it was a bit wet at times the mini

Janet's Blog – July 2021

The glorious weather we've been having of late has hopefully made up for those horrible cold wet days we had in May. From a farming point of view it was a nightmare for first cut silage – if you hadn't gone early it meant a nail biting wait. The grass is usually just right in terms of sugar,

Janet's Blog – April 2021

There's never been so much excitement around Bridge 80 as there has been over the last couple of months! On the 15th January I was on a morning off, riding round the farm tracks when Sam in the marina office called me to say we'd had a report of a "whirlpool" in the canal right by the

It all started so normal....

Well what can I say – the year started off so normal, wet, but still pretty normal. There I was moaning about how wet my horse paddock was and warning people on the marina not to step off the footpaths and then it all went pear-shaped with a global pandemic. It's not something that normally creeps

Well what a summer that's been! We've had a really busy time at the marina, the farm has been manic and the kids seemed to find a million and one things they needed me to do with them. So in summary, since I last wrote a blog the horsebox has been all over the place at various competitions. I'd
