We are offering you the chance to purchase delicious Green Island honey from the marina office at Cobb’s Quay Marina.
Perfect for your morning toast or to ward off those pesky winter bugs, the honey from the island in Poole Harbour has been produced for the last three years and is being sold with handmade wooden spurtles (honey dippers), with proceeds going to children’s hospice charity, Julia’s House.
You can purchase an 8oz jar for £5.50; an 8oz jar with honeycomb for £6.50 and a 1lb jar for £12.50.

MDL Marinas, Europe’s largest marina operator, continues to lead the industry by becoming an official Tesla Destination Charging location and the first UK marina operator to offer electric vehicle charging points for the prestigious range of vehicles.
The new units have been installed at Ocean Village Marina in Southampton, Cobb’s Quay Marina in Poole, Queen Anne’s Battery in Plymouth and at Hamble Point Marina alongside universal electric charging points, with a view to installing even more at its portfolio of 19 UK Marinas over the coming months.
MDL Marinas is renowned for being an innovator in the industry and is fully committed to ensuring its customers enjoy the latest technology and benefits as part of their berthing package with the group. They were the first operator to launch WiFi in 2004 and are well-known for being a company that doesn’t stand still, with a full corporate social responsibility plan and what remains the most comprehensive berthing package available in the marketplace.
Adrien Burnard, Head of Marketing at MDL Marinas, commented: “We are always striving to find new ways to add value to our customer experience and recognise the increased demand for electric vehicles and charging points. Many of our customers spend a lot of their pleasure time with us and so we wanted to ensure we made this time as convenient as possible by installing the charging points for them.
“We are very pleased to provide this service for Tesla owners as well as other EV owners. It’s a fantastic brand and a number of our customers have models from the range. However, we recognise the growing market for electric cars and the diverse range of models that are available and so have also installed Universal charging units to ensure we are offering choice and catering for our customers’ needs.”
The long weekend is almost upon us and there’s plenty going on at our sunny marinas. We’d love to see how you are spending your time on the water and it would be great to see you all flying your burgees and sharing your adventures on our social media pages, using #burgeesontour.
We know there’s loads planned at our marinas so whether your burgee is joining you for the Pirates of the Caribbean Cruise at Shamrock Quay, enjoying a tipple on the back of your boat on the Thames or visiting the ice cream boat on Bournemouth Beach, we’d really like to get our social media buzzing with all of your photos in the spectacular weather we’ve been promised!
It’s also a great chance for you to showcase your cruising adventures with other fellow boaters, and us (we will certainly be green with envy)! Why not share your photos and let us know your cruising destination and any new-found gems you’ve uncovered. Just remember to use #burgeesontour.
If you haven’t picked up your burgee yet, please pop into the marina office where yours will be waiting.
Happy Bank Holiday boating!
