Dee Estuary Regatta Weekend

NOTE Due to access issues discussed below the Dee Regatta prizegiving will be held at WKSC

ACCESS TO DEE SAILING CLUB
The music festival “Sunset over Thors Rock” is due to be held at White’s farm, which is on the north side of Station Road Thurstaston, over the period from midday Friday 28 May to 16.00 Sunday 30 May. Traffic along the A540 (Telegraph Road) and from there to the Sailing Club via Station Road and Church Farm Lane is likely to be heavy so those seeking access to the Club should allow for possible delays!

Some members may have seen or become aware of a Public Notice issued by Wirral B C Highways department published in the Liverpool Daily Post on 19 May 2010 which announces that an order will be made under the Road Traffic Regulations Act 1984 closing the whole of Station Road and Church Farm Lane (except for emergency vehicles) from 00.01 Friday 28 May until 23.59 Sunday 30 May 2010. I have today spoken to the Highways Department who confirm that they have made the order in case an incident occurs in the vicinity which necessitates the closure being implemented so that the emergency services can deal with the problems. In the ordinary course of events, however, access to and from the Club will normally be available throughout the period of the festival via the usual routes, although subject to possible delays as mentioned above. Security and Traffic Management personnel are to due be deployed to cope with the expected traffic flows.
