CROWDS gathered to toast the opening of new moorings in March’s West End Park this morning as part of an investment of more than £20,000.

Mayor of March Bernard Keane cut the ribbon before raising a glass with Councillor Chris Seaton, Fenland District Council’s portfolio holder for the economy and tourism.

The new moorings were installed as part of a March Area Regeneration and Development Trust (MARDT) project, funded by grants from Awards for All, Fenland District Council and Cambridgeshire ACRE.

Cllr Keane said: “It’s now a brilliant mooring. It’s absolutely lovely and I’m sure it will be extremely well used.

“I’m thrilled to bits. It was a fantastic morning with big crowds.”

Leader of Fenland District Council Alan Melton and staff from the Middle Level Commissioners also gathered along the Old River Nene for the opening ceremony.
