Welcome to our new website which came live today Monday 15th, we hope you will like it.
The change over follows extensive work by Web Design Solution, who host our service, on redesigning our current website which is several years old, to give it a new look and feel.Prior to the change over a note was posted on our site for a week advising of a technical matter that could impact on some of our users. See the following.
"The advances in technology in recent years has been significant and companies such as Microsoft have been rationalising their support for certain products and they discontinued support in April 2014 for its Windows XP operating system, which is over 12 years old. The XP operating system, which you can still use, came with the Internet Explorer browser version 8 which will not support the features available on our new website.
If you are still using a Windows XP PC there are other browsers such as Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox that are available for free that will allow you full access to the new site, these can be found on the internet and easily installed.
If you are using a Windows XP or Vista PC and using Internet Explorer version 8 and need advice will you please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org"
Today Saturday 13th we had the pleasure of a visit from the Lee family to POMII. Grace who was born with a heart disease came along with her mum and dad together with her two brothers Harry and George to see at first hand the boat. Kara her mum had contacted us after seeing one of our postings on Facebook, to ask if we could help fulfil a wish. On their walks around the harbour mum is always getting asked by them about going on a boat, so todays visit was something special for them. Provided the weather is kind the next step will be going for a sail with us over the Christmas holidays.
Each month we record the use of the boat for sails and static visits, which includes the numbers of persons sailing as "Enabled sailors". These statistics allow a record to be maintained each month so that the water borne activities of the charity can be measured. A number of measurements are taken and the key ones for November are:
- 5 Short sails completed
- 2 Day sails completed
- 31 Enabled berths filled
- 4 sails cancelled due to adverse weather
- 7 static vists to the boat by community groups
A brave and talented Manx girl performed a special honour at Alder Hey Children's Hospital on Thusrsday night when she turned on the Christmas lights.
Nine-year-old Grace Lee is among a number of Young Ambassadors for the hospital's charity, chosen to take part in the ceremony.
Grace, who was born with an incurable form of congenital heart disease, is a regular patient at Alder Hey.
In September a large flash mob gathered at Liverpool One, to support Grace when she sang in a public fundraiser.
A Youtube video made her an internet sensation. Click on this link to see Grace singing "Lean on me" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6EFZ64-5YY
Grace and her family will be visiting POMIII on Saturday 13 December and will and are looking forward to enjoying a sail with us early in the New Year.
