First Customer for new Whitemills Marina

Customer Tony is number one! When father of three Tony Collins of Earls Barton heard there was a new marina being built in the village, there was only one thing for it, he had to be the first to secure a mooring at the new White Mills 141 berth marina, just a few minutes walk from his home.

Said Tony: “Buying a boat has been something that my wife Nina and myself have wanted to do for some time; when we heard about White Mills then everything seemed to slot into place.”

Tony travelled to Nottingham to buy his vintage 1964 Nauticus 27 cruising boat, and his 18 year old son Oliver will be cruising it back to Northamptonshire in readiness for the opening of White Mills in October.

“We have always loved the River Nene, and to have our own boat that we can use to cruise along the local waterways, will be fantastic for all the family. The fact that it will be moored within walking distance of our home is a complete bonus too.”

Being the first person to book a mooring, Tony was able to have the pick of the berths at White Mills Marina, and ironically selected Berth Number 1 on the Bradshaw pontoon. The pontoons at the marina have been named after past residents of the mills, the Misses Bradshaws being the last residents before it was demolished by the Home Guard in 1939/40

Farmer John Skinner, who is developing White Mills Marina, added: “We are absolutely delighted to have Tony on board and to commit to a mooring before we are open. The interest we have received, especially over the past few days since work first began, has been incredibly encouraging, and we were delighted that Tony could pick the exact berth he wanted.”

A series of open weekends for White Mills Marina are being held on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th August, Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd August, Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th September and Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th September.

In addition White Mills Marina will be having a stand at the Northampton Festival of Water over August Bank Holiday.
