The marina opened in April 2016, and earlier this year it secured part funding through the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the Rural Payments Agency under the Rural Development Programme for England for a new facilities building which includes ladies and gents toilets, disabled facilities and a community meeting room.

Work on the new facility is now well underway and is due to be completed late July.
