Reduced Staff Through the Christmas Period Posted on December 21, 2020 at 11:39 am. Newlyn Harbour will be operating a reduced staff through the Christmas period and therefore the Harbour Office will be closed from Thursday the 24th December until Monday the 4th January. During this time there will be no availability to purchase either car parking permits or pontoon access cards. Any queries in relation to berthing or maritime matters are to be directed to the on watch staff through the usual harbour number. In an emergency call 999 and ask for the coastguard. It is recommended if there are any permit requirements for this period they are sent to the harbour no later that 1200 on the 23rd December.
