The Boatshed HQ team have been very busy this week preparing for the Southampton boat show which opens on Friday September 10th. Work started first thing Monday morning and we have been beavering away since.

I have to confess that when our destination for the weekend was first announced I wasn’t overly keen; the promise of lovely dog walks and a shopping trip to Chichester convinced me to give it a go and I’m happy to say I am now a complete convert to the delightful charm of Birdham Pool. I think my biggest reservations came from the almanac’s use of the term “rustic charm”. To me this brings to mind compost toilets and cold draughty wooden shower blocks but I have to say nothing could be further from the immaculate facilities on offer at Bridham Pool.
