Port of Blyth to Host 2021 Annual Public Meeting Online Again


Port of Blyth is to host it’s latest Annual Public Meeting online this month as a result of continued COVID restrictions.

The Port greatly values the input of all our stakeholders at the meeting and is looking forward to hosting the event online for the second time.

Scheduled for Monday 26th April, the meeting will take place via Zoom webinar and is designed to give those with business and community interests in Blyth information on the performance of the Port in 2020 as well as news of exciting plans for the future.

As a Trust Port, Port of Blyth is an independent organisation – neither privately nor publicly owned, and instead serves a wide range of stakeholders and routinely reinvests profits back into the company, as well as supporting numerous good causes through its community engagement programme.

The event will include a presentation on the performance of the port during 2020 including financial results, as well as the launch of both the Port’s Annual Review 2020.

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 activity. Questions are encouraged and will be accepted beforehand via email to

The Annual Public Meeting is open to anyone who would like to attend via registration beforehand. Accessing Zoom is very straight forward via your internet browser or the free app for your phone or computer, with no requirement to create an account.
