Solva Haebour Society Monthly news letters

Solva Harbour Society March 2021 Newsletter

Following the First Minister’s 19 February Briefing, Wales remains in Tier 4 lockdown.

The Quay therefore remains closed until further notice and members should observe the legal requirements. No boats may be maintained, launched or operated with the exception of commercial fishing vessels.

The toilets remain closed and the Café on the Quay remains closed at present. The site remains in ’care and maintenance’.

The general public will not be allowed to access the Quay until after Lift In. Last years’ experience showed that until boats are lifted in, the Quay becomes too crowded for safe social distancing and Covid Safety. The public may transit the Quay on the footpath but must observe the legal restrictions. When the Quay is eventually opened it is likely that 2m social distancing and mask wearing will be required on the Quay.

As soon as possible, when the regulations permit, the First General Meeting of Solva Harbour Society will be held, possibly as an outdoor meeting or a ‘drive in’. Monthly Committee meetings are not being held at present as not all Committee Members have access to the correct technology for ‘Zoom’ or ‘Teams’.  A small management meeting is held by Zoom once per week to manage essential business.

Thank you to all members for paying their fees and dues for 2021 in order to maintain the facilities and to meet the standing charges which have not been reduced. Those who have not paid following a reminder will cease to be Shareholders.

SHS Ltd will do all that we can to quickly open up the facilities in a phased way when it is safe and legal do so. We will keep members informed of changes and reduction to restrictions as they happen.

Covid 19 and its variants remain a major challenge to the safety of us all. As the vaccination process proceeds and we have all had our second vaccinations we hope that life will improve for us all.

The next routine monthly briefing will be published on the website in early April.

Best Wishes, stay safe,


David Phillips, Chair SHS Ltd.
