Dear Members,

Staff Drinks and Christmas Raffle Friday 14 Dec - We hope as many members as possible are able to come along and support the staff and take part in the Christmas raffle. A cold buffet will be provided. Raffle tickets are on sale at £1 a square.

HSSC Christmas Ball Saturday 8th Dec - Evening starts at 7pm with welcome drinks. Dress is black tie or jacket and tie. Looking forward to it!

Sunday 9 Dec Carvery - Carvery lunch available this Sunday. Please reserve a table on 02392 580935.

Thurs 13 Dec - HSSC Carols Around the Tree - Starts at 6.00pm. Christmas carols in the bar restaurant, open to members and their families with mulled wine, sausage rolls and mince pies following the carols.

Annual Invoices - Your annual invoices for Membership and Berthing have been emailed and should be in your inbox. If you have not received your invoice please check your spam before contacting the office. Please let us know if you have changed any of your contact details over the last year so we can update the database. Invoices are due for payment by Friday 18th January 2019.

Notice to Berthholders - Watch the weather forecast. Ensure your boats are well secured and fendered. Take care on the pontoons and take extra care at night, ensure you have a light handy to look out for obstructions and electric cables.

Winter Berthing - This is now available to members, non-berthholders, through to the end Feb 19. If you would like to apply for a Winter Berth please contact the office for terms and conditions.

Marina Opening - Please note that Marina office opening is now Tue - Sat. This routine will ensure that the Marina staff take their days off and that we have sufficient cover for lifts out/in. We will review the routine next season and in the meantime any short notice changes will be notified.

Car Parking in FB3 - For those parking in FB3, and adjacent to their boats whilst on lay up, please do not hinder the movement of the tractors and boat lift equipment - hold ups cause delay to our already busy boat lift schedule.

Reminder to Carry Membership ID - Please remember to carry your in-date Club ID cards at all times and to show to security staff on request.
