Venetian Marina on the Middlewich branch of the Shropshire Union Canal near Nantwich is hosting an Open Day on Sunday April 28.

The event is open to all narrowboaters and would-be-narrowboaters who can meet the marina team.

Venetian Marina was bought in 2011 by sister company Whilton Marina Ltd, in Northamptonshire.

Major works have been carried out including new mooring pontoons, new water system, re-piling the water’s edge, installed WiFi, refurbishment of the Chandlery and the creation of a new sales office.

Industry professionals will be at the open day, including local marine surveyor Steven Hand.

Boat Safety examiner Russel Smith will also attend. Cover and Canvas Repairs will be holding demonstrations throughout the day and will be able to answer any queries.

There will be various stalls – Stewart Jones selling rope work items, Anita Birtle Bead Studio selling Lamps and glass beads and jewellery, and a garden ornament stall.

A new business called Narrowboat Glass will also be present.

Also on the day will be The Doggie Boat, The Hippie Boat, The Pirate Boat, The Fudge Boat and Stitchmiltz the sewing boat.

Members of the Shropshire Union Canal Society will be talking about canal restoration works on the Montgomery Canal.

Refreshments will be provided by Andrea at the Venetian Marina Tea rooms and there will be BBQ on offer outdoors.

Entertainment is being provided by acoustic duo Baxter.

Free canal boat trips will be provided by Sue and BJ Sandoe aboard their new day boat.

    You’ve forgotten to include a new exciting business which will lose out now on vital exposure of its existence..Narrowboat Glass! Hopefully this can be rectified somehow.
