Port of Blyth officials are to host the Port’s Annual Public Meeting 2022 in person following two years where the event took place online due to COVID restrictions.

Designed to give those with business and community interests in the town information on the record-breaking performance of the Port in 2021, the meeting is scheduled for Monday 25 April at the Port Training Centre in Blyth.

As well as a presentation on the financial and operational performance of the Port and the launch of both the trust port’s Annual Review for 2021, the event will feature the latest news of the Port’s exciting plans for the future.

A live Q&A with Chief Executive Martin Lawlor and Chair of the Board of Commissioners Geoff Hodgson will offer stakeholders the opportunity to ask questions on any aspect of port activities. Questions are encouraged and will be accepted beforehand via email to enquiries@portofblyth.co.uk.

“As an independent Trust Port, we work on behalf of a wide range of stakeholders and their input at our Annual Public Meeting each year is both encouraged and highly valued.”

Also on show on the day will be the fabulous winning entries from the Port’s popular Annual Community Photography Competition 2021, whilst attendees will be able to take advantage of a networking opportunity over coffee and cake.
