Great news – reservoir now over 70% full!
After a serious drop in water levels at Staunton Harold Reservoir, we’re pleased to announce that the reservoir is now over 70% full. We have been advised by Severn Trent Water (STW) that we can look forward to water levels at 75% by the time we open the water for sailing with our launch event – The Staunton Blaster – on 2nd/3rd March. And, the goal is to get Staunton back to 95% full as soon as possible! You can see from the photos taken on Valentine’s Day that the pontoon is floating once more, the long slipways are once again useable and the foreshore is shrinking rapidly.
