Queenborough Harbour Trust is through to round two of the Coastal Community Funding programme and has been invited to apply for a government grant to install sixty new moorings.
If successful this would bring the total number of moorings to 180, create new job opportunities and give a boost to local trade.
This weekend the Queenborough Harbour trot boat service will run:
- Sat 28 May: 10am to 9pm
- Sun 29 May: 10am to 9pm
- Mon 30 May: 10am to 6pm
