Another chance to meet Wightlink managers

By a County Press reporter

Thursday, May 22, 2014


WIGHTLINK managers will be at the Fishbourne terminal on Wednesday, between 2pm and 6pm, to listen to customers’ views about the company’s services.

It is the latest in a series of Meet the Managers events and although the main aim is to meet Islanders and holidaymakers who use the Fishbourne to Portsmouth car ferry, all customers are welcome to attend, the company said.

"We value these opportunities to talk to people who use our ferries," said chief operating officer John Burrows.

"We have already taken on board several suggestions about improving our services from customers we met at previous events."

There will be music from a string quartet formed of players from the Isle of Wight Symphony Orchestra, which is one of 100 Island clubs and organisations supported by Wightlink.

There will also be a hog roast provided by the Isle of Wight Bacon Company, part of Brownrigg’s Meat and Poultry of Godshill.

Donations will be invited for Wightlink’s official charity, the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance.

Nice one Den.
Easiest way to get his attention is to start a bandwagon. He's sure to jump on it.

jack, I tried to contact Andrew Turner but he was opening a fete and then going to a charity photo shoot but that got held up because they couldn't find a baby for him to hold.

I'd like to see the travel expenses sheet for whoever sourced the furniture for the recent St Clare refurbishment. They truly must have scoured the earth to find the most uncomfortable seating in the world.

Trouble is Den, everyone says they want late night signings but too few people use them. No business is going to provide goods or services that no one wants.
If you want that basic law of economics to change you'd be better off campaigning for cross-Solent services to be subsidised by the government.
You ought to have a word with Andrew Turner, assuming he's still not too busy helping his chums buy Wightlink.
