ABP announces that it will be welcoming the Royal Navy’s HMS Grimsby, into the Port of Grimsby on Sunday 15th September.
For one day only, HMS Grimsby will be lowering her gangway at ABP's port and allowing the public to come aboard to learn about the important work the Royal Navy does in protecting the UK, as well as the host of other roles it performs across the world.
The vessel will open for public viewing between the hours of 12.00 – 16.00 for one day only, at The Port of Grimsby, Cleethorpe Road, Grimsby DN31 3LL.
ABP Regional Director for the Humber, Simon Bird said: “We are extremely proud to be able to have this fantastic opportunity to welcome a Royal Navy vessel to the port as part of our ongoing partnership in support of the Armed Forces. The event will follow on from the ABP Humber Coastal Half Marathon, making another great weekend to be in North East Lincolnshire.”
There are limited car parking spaces available on the port so we ask, where possible to car share or walk to the area. The car park will be adjacent to the ship, behind the Grimsby Port Office.
Due to the physical restrictions of climbing a gangway on to a Navy vessel, we regret that the event is unsuitable for wheelchairs and young children.
