Fixing the Marina Slipway
In November an Estuary Care team of Chester Wilmot, Dennis Dallas, Nick Albrightson, and Stuart Clarkson together with Vuyo Nyumka and Shaun Kwekwani from the Marina worked over a number of days to repair the Marina Slipway. They filled hessian sacks, neatly sewn by hand on site, with concrete which they then moved into position where the edge of the original slipway joins the estuary.
