Café 1804 The first floor of the facilities building is having a major makeover ready for our new cafe Café 1804. The new toilets are almost complete. Structural works have been carried out for the kitchen and new walling, flooring and extraction fans have been fitted. The kitchen equipment is now being delivered and installed, and Josh and Heidi have been busy choosing furniture and fittings. The walls of the cafe’ have a striking design with bright new colours. Café 1804 will seat approximately 80 people and we look forward to seeing you all when we open later in the spring. The cafe’ has a lift from the ground floor and the building has disabled facilities for both visitors and boaters.
Harry and Sally, The Bosworth Marina Day boat The website for the day boat is now live – click here to view. Bookings are now being taken for the spring, summer and beyond for all those special occasions or just for a quiet ride along ‘The Ashby’. “Birthday on a boat” on full, half day or short taster trips are proving popular with all ages and group sizes and we are happy to provide decorations and balloons! We will provide a friendly steerer for you if require, and we are also happy to provide catering packages – just discuss your requirements with our team.
Site Works Leicestershire County Highways have been working along the Wellesborough Road and the Carlton Road junction to construct the footpath and the new bus parking area, so we now have a dedicated footway to the marina road entrance. Additional car parking spaces are being constructed by Ben and his team. We will shortly carry out more planting and landscaping when the weather improves. Drainage, levelling and kerbing has continued during January and February along the main spine road of the site round to the building.
