Shoreham Port’s popular biannual newsletter ‘PORTlife’ was released today. The autumn edition of the newsletter is the 14th in the PORTlife series, which started back in 2010. Since then, the newsletter has grown in popularity and acts as an effective means of communication with many of the Port’s stakeholders, including its customers, commercial tenants, businesses operating on the Port and members of the local community.
This edition of the newsletter takes a look back at how the Port has grown and developed since early Roman times and how the vessels we see visiting the Port today differ from those at the start of the 16th century. There is a detailed review of the diverse range of vessels we see enter the Port today and an exclusive interview with the Captain of MV. Ernst Hagedorn, a general cargo vessel and regular port visitor.
The newsletter concludes with a reflection over the communities surrounding the Port and how they turned from small villages into industrial towns thanks to an increase in trade in the local area.
Katie Orchin, Marketing & Communications Executive at Shoreham Port commented “We were keen to have a historical theme to this edition of the newsletter. With the Port’s rich history there was plenty to talk about but after feedback from visitors at our boat tours this summer, we realised there was a lot of interest in how the vessels have changed over the years. It was a pleasure to research this in more detail and share the findings with our readers.”
