As it is now November, the Inner Harbour is now closed to the public for the winter. It’s the time of year for vessel and larger harbour maintenance jobs. If you’re out walking in Charlestown, you will be likely to see a busy harbour below as the team work on the Harbour, Anny, Mascotte and some of the other vessels that are here with us for the winter.

Despite lockdown version 2, there are still businesses in Charlestown able to remain open for takeaway including; Cubs Coffee is serving great coffee, drinks and homemade cakes, Charlestown Fish Co has a delicious range of fresh fish dishes, The Longstore is offering a fantastic takeaway menu (Thursday- Monday) and Tallships Creamery has their yummy range of homemade ice creams on offer. Many other local shops are also able to offer online sales or click and collect, such as Atishoo Gallery and Jangles Jewellery and Gifts. Please support these independent local businesses at this very difficult time. Stay safe, stay positive – we are all in this together.
