It’s been another busy year at Shoreham Port. Many new members of staff have been welcomed to the team, along with some exciting additions to the Port, including a new pilot cutter and work boat to assist the Engineering and Marine Departments. Cargo volumes have continued to rise and are above average compared to this time last year with timber up 21%, steel up 41% and bulk and other cargoes up 14%. The Engineering team have also been busy preparing for the winter with updates to coastal protection areas and maintenance of the Port’s large estate.
Instead of sending paper Christmas cards, Shoreham Port selects a different Christmas Charity to support each year. This year the Port has chosen the Adur Special Needs Project (ASNP) based in Shoreham. The ASNP provides out of school clubs and activities for children and young people with a diverse range of special needs.
A Christmas Jumper Day was also held at Shoreham on Friday 19th December also raising money for the ASNP. Rodney Lunn, Chief Executive at Shoreham Port commented “As we reach the end of another busy year at the Port, I would like to thank all of our staff for their commitment and our customers for their support throughout 2014. There are many projects and developments on the horizon for 2015, but for now it is important to look back and reflect on another successful year.”
Have a very Merry Christmas from all the team at Shoreham Port!
