|Hampshire Constabulary - Flare Amnesty||08-04-2014|
|Hampshire Constabulary Marine Unit in conjunction with Ramora UK, one of the UK’s leading bomb disposal companies and the below marinas are offering "a distress flare amnesty" for private boat owners. The disposal of out-of-date flares is a growing problem for boat owners who face severe penalties if they fail to follow the correct procedures.
Out-of-date flares can be delivered to the following sites in Hampshire & the Isle of Wight.
Up to ten flares per private individual will be accepted free of charge however we will be asking for a charitable donation. Previous other events have charged £2 per flare. Disposal of quantities greater than ten will only be possible by prior agreement.
Over the year we hope to raise enough money to buy a sailing dinghy(ies) which we will then donate to a sailing club(s) for the use of young people who would not normally get the opportunity to experience the sport of sailing.
