Good progress has been made over the summer months on the construction of the new lifeboat station. The modern facility will house Pwllheli's new Shannon Class lifeboat and provide much improved training facilities for the RNLI's dedicated volunteers. The photos below (taken recently) show how the building looks from both the marina and Abererch beach.
Work earlier this year on rebuilding the Crib Groyne at the entrance to Pwllheli harbour has helped provide better protection from the waves and reduce sediment at the mouth of the channel. In recent weeks signage has been erected to warn against climbing on the rocks.
Mountain of silt removed
As part of the improvements on Gimblet Rock the large quantity of silt that had built up from previous dredging activities has now been removed after a successful tender process. The stockpile of sand and gravel piled up on the spit at the entrance to the harbour has all gone - see photo below!
Keeping the marina safe
Thanks to everyone for complying with our guidelines to combat the spread of the coronavirus. Signage and sanitiser stations were installed at key locations on site and measures introduced to ensure only one person at a time was allowed in Reception. This effort has been vital to keeping the marina and its services open, safe and enjoyable for everyone over the summer.
