Watchet Marina 20th Anniversay.....


Over the weekend 24th/25th of July Watchet celebrated the 20th anniversary of opening of the town’s marina with an anniversary ribbon cutting ceremony performed by town mayor Cllr John Irven. Before doing so he welcomed district council representatives, members of several local organisations and individuals who had attended the celebration event. He went on to thank members of the Watchet Boat Owners Association committee, including Cathy Yuill, Marine Group Staff and Molly Quint for organising the street market and other entertainment. Martin Stevens, Treasurer of WBOA, and Marine Group director Christopher Odling-Smee also spoke in very positve terms regarding the future of Watchet Marina. WBOA sponsored bacon rolls for those attending activities on the Esplanade the following day. Please see a full report printed in The West Somerset Free Press with pictures by Terry Walker.
