Ferry News         
Dear all,
Unfortunately the Amelia K will not be operational on Monday the 8th or Tuesday the 9th of December. The port gearbox is worn, and we would rather do preventative maintenance now than deal with breakdown maintenance over the holiday period, so we will be changing the entire engine.We will still be providing our normal service using the much loved Curlew and historic Elvina.Please bear with us.

Kind Regards Penny Gleen
