Good news for those boaters keen to get back on the water in Ards and North Down in Northern Ireland.
All the Harbours and slipways operated by Ards and North Down Council will be open from this morning (Wed 27th May) following the easing of COVID-19 restrictions.
This action is in line with the NI Executive’s announcement last week regarding reopening access to certain outdoor activities, including water sports.
The council asks users to note that:-
- All harbour facilities will be operating with additional control measures designed to protect both staff and the public from exposure to, and transmission of, COVID-19 (more details are available at www.ardsandnorthdown.gov.uk/resident/harbours/introduction
- All those using the harbours for recreation are asked to adhere to social distancing guidelines and to be considerate to other users.
The harbours include Groomsport, Donaghadee, Ballywalter, Ballyhalbert and Cooke St Pier, Portaferry.
