Mission Christmas 2018 – Helping Local Children Living in Poverty

Mission Christmas –  You can help Salterns Marina and Wave 105 Radio make Christmas Day different for local children living in poverty.

It’s a heart-breaking thought, but there are thousands of children living right here in our community who are in danger of waking up to no presents on Christmas Day.
If you’re able, please buy an extra present this year and donate it to Mission Christmas.We’re looking for new and unwrapped gifts suitable for children and young people aged 0 to 18.
You can drop them off here at Salterns Marina until Wednesday December 12th. While you’re at it why not warm up and relax with a freshly ground coffee or a comforting hot chocolate as you look out across the frosty marina.

Every gift donated stays local so you can be sure that your generosity will benefit children living in our area. Thank you for your support.

RYA DIESEL ENGINE COURSE SUCCESS

Great feedback from our one day RYA Diesel Engine Course, held on 5th March and hosted by Steve Jones, instructor from Salterns Sea School, in how to prevent and solve diesel engine failure.

Berth Holder Sue Sieger said “It was excellent, he made it so interesting and his knowledge of all types of engines, suited all types of boat owners that were on the course, from launches, yachts & larger motor cruisers, he knew the good & bad points whether they were water cooled, air cooled, it didn’t matter he knew it all.

What I found particularly good was being able to see all the different engine & exhaust parts, that could cause problems, he made us take out & fit impellers, fit drive belts, bleed the fuel, in fact all the things that can cause a break down at sea.”
