The PCA committee hope that the recent great summer weather has had a good impact on your businesses. Certainly I am aware that many have been very pleased to see such a summer. We have now seen a sudden change of weather with some storms. We trust everyones vessels survived these storms without any problems.
As the main season slows we have seen The Southampton Boat show running for 10 days and quite a few members were exhibiting here. We are yet to receive updates on this show but many of us have also visited and seen good crowds on many days. The water side activities have been curtailed for safety as the very strong winds meant some water activities were halted.
The PCA are pleased at recent member increases we have seen from different operators and all have been added swiftly to our new website by John and Jaki at https://www.tlc-online.co.uk. We made a good decision at the last AGM to change and we have not been let down and have been fully supported. Don't forget to look at their website as they offer printing and banners as well as website work.
Further along in the newsletter is a reminder of what discounts can be obtained off our website.
