With International Maritime Day in Poole, and Poole harbour Boat show approaching fast Jenkins Marine have been on a mission to take some pride in Poole, their base of operations. and restore some of the local maritime landmarks and features.
Having been approached about participating in these forthcoming maritime events Jenkins Marine Director Dan Jenkins took the opportunity to ask the council if they had any plans to get these nautical features spruced up in time for their start but was saddened to here that the council did not believe it had resources to do so at this time.
Keen to see the features restored, Jenkins Marine has provided labour, equipment and paint to get the job done – and all at their own expense.
Director Dan Jenkins said:
“I take pride in Poole, and have taken this opportunity for a local marine company to give something back to the town.”
With much of the restoration work now completed Barry Sparkes of Poole Borough Council said:
“Thank you for your input into this it has really made a difference to the look of the area and is a credit to your company. I am sure that visitors to Poole will notice the improvement.”
