A flare disposal day is being held to allow boat owners to safely get rid of out of date flares.

The first three flares will be free of charge for Premier Brighton Marina berth holders, with additional flares charged at £2.

Visitors will be charged £2 per flare disposal.

Any flare can be handed in at the marina’s Nickys Chandlery. Premier berth holders who buy a new flare from the chandlery will receive £1 towards each flare disposal fee.

There will also be the opportunity to have lifejackets checked by the RNLI and meet the local RNLI Water Safety team.
