The start of May has brought the sun out to shine at last. It's been a very long winter indeed! Here at Whilton Marina we are all looking forward to a long warm summer, lets hope so!
Plans are well underway for the Crick Boat Show at the end of this month; Saturday 25th May- Monday 27th May. We will be exhibiting as usual along with our two sister companies Venetian Marina and Cosgrove Park, so do come along, it's a great day out for all the family. Come and see us on our stand in the Kingfisher Marquee, (stands 11-18). We have lots of goody bags and prizes to give away, so come along and say hello. We have been blogging a lot about the Crick show recently so hopefully you have already read about our plans for the show and even met some of our team! If you are coming, don't forget to buy your tickets in advance for the Crick Boat Show and you can save up to 29 percent off the entrance cost, so it's well worth doing so.
