It’s a triumph for a bunch of persistent and hard-working people and for community support – the ferry is due to be re-launched tomorrow 5th August with a full, Summer service starting Saturday 6th August.
The opening event is free and starts at 12.30 including: pyrotechnics, Police guard of honour, music by local star Chloe Anne, free face painting, and the Portsmouth Football Club mascot.
For one day only, crossings will be £1 per trip.
More details of the opening event, fares and timetable on the ferry’s new web site at www.haylingferry.net.
Later this evening we’ll be removing the ‘No Ferry’ sign at the top of the island and updating all the sign boards around the island.
