Spring 2017
The strangest month!

It's been a funny month – it kicked off with a stolen boat story. We had a poster from an insurance company about some stolen boats – as it's quite an unusual occurrence (well you can't exactly do a quick getaway!) you can imagine the interest it caused. We were even more surprised to find

Marina of Distinction Award
You missed one!

What a month January was! Angus, Dave and I were invited down to the London Boat Show to the Marina of the Year awards and not only did we win, but we were the first inland marina to be awarded the very prestigious Marina of Distinction Award! To win it you have to be winner or runner up of Marina of

The Overwater Bridge
Happy New Year 2017

Happy New year! I can't believe another year has passed so quickly. It's certainly been a busy one at the marina and for our family in general. There have been some sad times with the loss of Christine Woolford, a lovely lady who always gave me a hug. But also some positives – I've been

Father Christmas
Ho Ho Ho!

What a month it's been – with the cruising season well and truly over the office usually goes a bit quieter but this month has been hectic. We've had some lovely days at the start of the month but just lately it's been really rather wet. Angus was actually quite chuffed to find the first

Boats on Bluebell
August Hols

What a month it's been – summer time is always hectic at Overwater but for me personally the clash of school holidays and work can be just a bit tricky. I've manged to alleviate it to a degree by fixing daughter No. 1 up with work experience on a local dressage and livery yard and daughter No.

Mallard Ducks
Odd one out

If you ever feel sorry for the odd one out, then spare a thought for our feathered friends – by that I mean our little white duck. We were so excited in the spring to welcome the first few batches of the ducklings, all cute and fluffy. At the time I thought my eyes were deceiving me – but when I walked

Reception Garden
Green Fingers

I've just come to realise that I clearly don't have a creative bone in my body – I'm definitely functional. We've been messing about with an area of garden by the marina reception pretty much since we moved in to the building and have never got it right. It started off as a shrubbery
