Aqueduct Marina Earns Fourth Consecutive National Award
During the Southampton International Boat Show, powered by Borrow A Boat, last week Church Minshull Aqueduct Marina was announced as the winner of The Yacht Harbour Association (TYHA) Towergate Marina of the Year.
For the fourth consecutive time the Shropshire Union Canal based family marina has won the national UK inland marina of the year award. The industry-wide recognised annual award is voted for by berth holders and customers.
Philip Langley, Marina and Operations Director at Church Minshull Aqueduct Marina, commented: "Church Minshull Aqueduct Marina is extremely thrilled and honoured to be awarded Inland Marina of the Year 2019, especially as this honour is selected by popular vote.
"This is the perfect way to cap off our 10th anniversary year and the award really belongs to our fantastic staff, who work tirelessly to make sure our customers get the best boating experience possible. Also, we would like to thank all those who voted, and we look forward to welcoming our existing, new and returning customers over the year ahead"
Jon White, General Manager of The Yacht Harbour Association, commented: "I wanted to share a huge congratulations to all the winners and runners up, as well as all marinas who received votes in the 2019 Towergate Marina of the Year competition.
"Marinas play a crucial role in enabling more people to get out on the water, so we are delighted to celebrate and reward the excellent work our marinas have achieved this year."
