|The middle weekend of March 2013 brought Seahouses to the world's attention via press and TV reports of the inexplicable grounding of the DANIO on the rocks of the Farne Islands. It was a full year later that various court cases ended with a fine of £60,000 being imposed.|
|On the morning of Thursday the twenty-first the visibility was good enough to be able to spot the distant vessel direct from Seahouses. It was finally towed clear on a suitable tide at 3.00am ten days later.|
|The twenty-first century came within sight of Seahouses on the glorious, sunny morning of Thursday, 14th February 2013! It was then that the first stage of the installation of the wind farm west of the A1 became visible - by telephoto anyway - from Seahouses golf course as well as from some properties in the village itself.
In fact the first installation to be completed was the next one northwards: it was on the 27th of February that we were able to appreciate the final appearance of our distant neighbour wind turbines. Impressive or intrusive? Modern windmill resource or desperate waste of investment? Shall we get to ignore them? - or to love them? Anyway, they soon started popping up like mushrooms overnight!
|There's a unique opportunity for some entrepreneur (or some charitable donor) to take over the erstwhile "Harbour Inn", so centrally located in Seahouses immediately next to the Main Street / King Street roundabout. The combination of a versatile building with its own frontage area, car park and garden provides facilities for both commercial and social activities, under community or private enterprise auspices or some inspired combination of the two.|
A selling agent has been appointed but I have not been able to find details on their website. Nor do emails seem to be very effective. The best plan might be to contact the present owners in the Links Hotel next door and avoid agency fees?
|HELP! We need someone to safeguard the future of our Village Post Office. There's an opportunity for some entrepreneur to join our community as an important contributor to both the commercial and the social life of the village. 10/12 King Street, Seahouses is for sale, as a whole or with house and Post Office separately. Details are here.|
