Premier Marinas in conjunction with disposal expert, Ramora UK, will be holding two Flares Disposal Days this summer.
A chance for boat owners to bring along out of date flares, have them checked and disposed of safely. The first three flares will be free of charge for Premier berth holders – additional flares charged at £2.00. Visitors will also be charged £2.00 per flare disposal.
Sunday 13 June at Chichester Marina from 10.00 to 15.00. The RNLI will be on hand to conduct life-jacket clinics and own boat checks. A beauty spot with free parking.
Saturday 26 June at Brighton Marina in collaboration with onsite Nickys Chandlery from 10.00 to 15.00. The chandlery will pay £1.00 towards the flare disposal fee when berth holders* buy a new flare from the chandlery. Moreover, berth holders and visitors can park right outside the chandlery for one hour for free. All profits will be donated to the RNLI.
Premier Brighton Marina Manager, Mike Hatch said: “This event is a good reminder for boat owners to check expiry dates on safety equipment regularly and replace them before they expire – so that they can be sure to be properly equipped in an emergency”.
For those who intend to dispose of a large number of flares please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
*Berth holders eligible for the saving on production of their boat name and key fob.
