On 25th January 2019, our Chairman, Captain Andrew Cassels, had the pleasure of attending the opening of the refurbished Seafarers' Centre at DP World London Gateway. The refurbished centre is a vast improvement on the existing centre and now offers a larger and much airier facility complete with television, WiFi, a pool table and other leisure activities for seafarers to rest in off the ship. The centre was opened by Colin Hitchcock, Harbour Master for DP World, Alex Campbell, CEO QVSR and Stephen Metcalfe MP for South Basildon and East Thurrock. This new facility demonstrates what can be achieved through a collaborative partnership between the port and local welfare providers. Captain Cassels would like to thank DP World for their enthusiastic involvement which will be greatly valued by visiting seafarers visiting this important growing port.
