Seafarers Awareness week – 24th and 30th of June.

Seafarers Awareness week –  24th and 30th of June.

As an ‘island nation’ the UK has always been heavily dependent on our maritime industry. Over 90% of imports come to us by ship, including much of our everyday food and fuel. Yet many people are completely unaware of the world of shipping, the seafarers who work in it, and the essential role of our sea ports.

Businesses across the North East region will be offering schools the opportunity to visit sites along the coast so young people can find out more about what it’s like to be a seafarer.

Places will be allocated on a strictly first come, first served basis – so if interested please see Mr Foster ASAP
