Solva Harbour Society Monthly news letters

SHS JUNE 2021 Newsletter.

The Summer season is here, and the Quay is getting very busy. Members and Visitors must comply with Government Covid advice at all times, as Covid remains a significant ongoing threat.

Unfortunately, there was a severe Gale / Storm on 20/21 May which caused a significant amount of damage. Attached to this Newsletter is advice to Members about managing their moorings and keeping their vessels safe. Please read it and check your moorings and trots. Remember you are individually responsible for maintaining your mooring.

The SHS full Committee were able to meet for the first time since the Pandemic started, on 1st June 2021. Monthly Committee meetings have resumed on the first Tuesday of the month; Minutes will be published on the website.

The delayed first General Meeting of Solva harbour Society will be held on 31st July at 1000hrs. Venue will be confirmed after June 18th. You will have received information on how to put matters on the Agenda which must be received by 18th June.

10 members have been nominated to serve as Committee Members, and a vote will be held to elect seven members of the SHS Committee.

For the General Meeting, members may attend in person to vote. If unable to attend they may nominate a Proxy to vote on their behalf, or they may have a postal vote.

Further information will follow shortly on the General Meeting process.

SHS Ltd has had its accounts prepared by Bevan and Buckland and the Committee have reviewed them. The Accounts and Social account will be submitted to the Financial Services Authority by the deadline on 1st July.

The Quay is expected to get even busier as more people ‘staycation’ and come to holiday in Pembrokeshire. Please ensure that you display your car passes and boat stickers at all times. SHS has put a flier in ‘Solva News’ to brief visitors and residents on the use of the Quay. Only members are permitted to park on the Quay or launch from the Trinity Quay slipway which must be kept clear, visitors should be politely asked to move when boats are launching and recovering. Kayaks, paddleboards and bubbles should not be left blocking the slip. Visitors may launch from the Sand Quay and pay the fee.

Hopefully, everybody can treat each other with a friendly smile, respect the environment, take their rubbish away and enjoy Solva. Tourists and visitors are the engine of the local economy.

Enjoy the Summer safely and be Covid Safe.

The next Newsletter will be circulated in early August after the General Meeting.

Best Wishes to you all,

David Phillips, Chairman, on behalf of the Committee.      2nd June.
