ALL Money Raised from Adopt A Plank will be invested in the Harbour
As a Non-Profit trust we are continually looking for ways to raise funds. This year we are launching “Adopt a Plank”, and asking everyone with an interest in the harbour to “Adopt a Plank” on our newly refurbished walkway.
For £25 you can have a personalized silver plaque and for £50 you can have a personalized gold plaque fixed to the walkway.
Whether you are a mooring holder, a visitor, friend or volunteer, yacht club, business or simply someone who wants to see the harbour thrive and become a great success, we welcome your support.
All the money raised from Adopt A Plank will be invested in the Harbour.

More Info & FAQ’s …………
Our “Adopt a Plank” fundraising scheme will help us move the harbour forward by attracting investment as well as interest in the harbour by promoting a sense of community. Queenborough really is one of the very few destination ns on the Tidal Medway & Swale with walk ashore access; by “Adopting a Plank” you will be buying into the community spirit of the harbour and helping to ensure its long term success.
Queenborough Harbour has suffered from chronic underinvestment for a number of years and the Trust is continually looking to access funds which will enable it to supply the amenities and services which other areas, not having been starved of investment can take for granted. For example, shore power, water and fuel as well as enhanced river access and security.
The primary business goal is to develop the harbour services that attract greater business and help ensure its long-term viability. Users of the harbour will benefit from the improved services on offer and as visitor numbers increase so the local community will benefit from their spending power, which in turn will improve shore-side facilities and attract even more visitors.
