Save money on winter storage at Trafalgar Wharf!

With autum approaching I bet the last thing you are thinking about is where to store your boat ashore this winter. But you will be surprised to know that we have lots of enquiries and many returning customers have already booked their lift out.

So, pay a £100 deposit in the next four weeks for winter storage, and receive a 5% discount off your total bill. Then, pay the total cost of your package upfront and receive a further 5% discount!

Tony, Site Manager at Trafalgar Wharf, said "I've been making preparations in the yard, tidying and sorting the boats that are already here. Phil and Jim have been painting and doing maintenance on the machines ready for our busiest winter yet."

Trafalgar Wharf supports tenant in sponsored swim for British Heart Foundation

Chris from Waterside Boat Sales, a Tenant at Trafalgar Wharf, took part in the 2012 British Heart Foundation, Bournemouth to Boscombe, Pier to Pier swim on July 15th.

The total distance of the swim was 1.4 miles, which is 2,253 meters or 90 lengths of a 25 meter pool!

All the  sponsorship went to the British Heart Foundation who carry out lifesaving heart research each year and need support and funding to continue developing lifesaving treatment.

"I made sure I was one of the last of the 1400 swimmers to go in (just in case it was too cold) and completed the swim in 46 minutes. We had set a target of £500 and raised £720 in total, so a big thank you to everyone at Trafalgar Wharf who helped us reach this amazing amount of money."

Mark Compton of Driftwood Mechanical Services at Trafalgar Wharf

Mark Compton of Driftwood Mechanical Services based here at Trafalgar Wharf did a skydive for his birthday. It was a gift from wife Vanessa as she recently completed a skydiver herself for the RENAL Unit at QA Hospital in Cosham.

The reason for her doing this is because last year she underwent major surgery to give her brother one of her kidneys.

Mark was desperate to do the skydive too, but he was told that he was too heavy! Vanessa managed to find a Red Devil that would take him and he loved every minute and can’t wait to do it again. Click here to see Marks fall.

Olympic celebrations at Trafalgar Wharf

We would like to give a huge congratulations to Team GB for their amazing medal haul. As you may have seen on the notice board outside the Trafalgar Wharf office we have been adding the gold medals each day and so by the end of the Olympics the board was overflowing!

Leah who plays hockey for Portsmouth and Southsea Hockey Club was lucky enough to get tickets for some of the Women’s placing hockey matches on Friday 10th August.

“The atmosphere was amazing and it was an experience I will always remember. My seat was on the top row and so I had a great view over the Olympic Park. I wish I was better at Hockey to have been playing instead of watching. Maybe I'll have my chance at Rio!”

Jo in uniform filming at Trafalgar Wharf

On Sunday 29th July our Office Manager, Jo, made her acting debut in a film called ‘The Dossier’ filmed right here at Trafalgar Wharf. The scene was set for Jo, in a replica Police uniform supplied with boots three sizes too small, to assist in finding a young woman captured by criminals held in one of our disused buildings.

Leading up to the day of filming, Jo had been practising her karate kicks and her lines ready for the scene. In fact, we have had to replace four doors in the office!

On the day, a nervous Jo was quaking in her police boots, she was acting in the scene on her own but was watched by six members of the production team.

The film will be out next year and is being taken to a few film festivals. I’m sure Jo will enjoy walking down the red carpet with Vin Diesel, (unfortunately for Jo he is not in the film but is her favourite actor).

For the past couple of years we have supported our local community and sailors at Portchester Sailing Club.

As a thank you for their support, each year we add to their fundraising efforts to thank them for using Trafalgar Wharf for winter storage. This money will be allocated towards the much needed renovation of their club house.

Trevor Exelby, Commodore of PSC, accepted a cheque on the clubs’ behalf presented by Corinne, Sales Manager at Trafalgar Wharf. We look forward to welcoming members of PSC for another winter.
