A GRAND opening ceremony will celebrate the refurbishment of Thornham Marina.

The marina, near Emsworth, has undergone a three-year overhaul and a summer barbecue will mark its completion on August 12 from 2pm.

Around 180 boat owners from the marina are expected to attend, with live music from a jazz group.

Marina manager Jeanette Critchell said: ‘It will be an amazing celebration to finally welcome all of our boat owners to the new pontoons.

‘It is something that both staff and boat owners have been very excited by.’
