Please Help Dock Worker Hagar Babbington

Hagar Support Fund

Hagar Babbington was hit from the side on his motorbike in Felixstowe. He was only riding slow between two roundabouts but the crash has caused his left leg to be badly injured and now resulting in the loss of his foot. 
East Anglian Bikers want to help Hagar get through these next few weeks until he ‘gets back on his feet ‘. 

Please help if you can and support him. We all appreciate any help possible and thank you for reading this and supporting our friend in his hour of need. 

Hagar relocated to Felixstowe to seek employment at The Port Of Felixstowe around three years ago. He very quickly eased himself into the Felixstowe social scene and Dock life. Now this tragedy has turned his life upside down.

Port of Southampton to lose call by Maersk/MSC Asia-Europe service

The 2M alliance of Maersk and MSC is to leave the UK port of Southampton.
It has announced it will drop the call at the country’s second largest container gateway by the Asia-Europe AE1/Shogun service the carriers jointly operate.
A spokesman for Maersk told The Loadstar: “The reason for withdrawing the Southampton call was because we could not offer reliable service with the number of port calls in the rotation. Thus, in order to improve our service quality, we decided to take the call out.”
The last 2M vessel to call at Southampton will be the 19,500 teu MSC Diana, which is set to depart Colombo on 28 February and, according to Maersk’s schedule, arrive at Southampton on 21 March.
The spokesman confirmed that this would end the line’s direct services into the port.
