  1. Tolls - Speechless

    Hello dnks34, Your stance is commendable but while ever the Broads is managed by this quango I have a feeling that you are wasting your breath, the good doctor does not seem to listen to anyone including his own officers and front lined troops. Regards Alan
  2. Hi There

    Hello Rob & Caz welcome to the NBN forum. Regards Alan
  3. Great Canal Journeys

    I am really looking forward to the program, not only Tim & Pru but some screening of the Broads. Regards Alan
  4. Shock Closure Of The Buck At Thorpe

    We have found the Kings Head and most of the other Weatherspoons we have been in on our boating holidays to be busy, value for money and often have offers on selected meals such as a free drink or even a free bottle of wine with two steak meals. Regards Alan

  8. Menu From Early 1970’s

    I started work as a apprentice electrician in 1968 the hourly rate was one shilling and three halfpence an hour, my first weeks wages for a full week (5 days) plus an hours overtime one night and a Saturday morning was a little over £5 with the stoppages. Regards Alan
  9. Menu From Early 1970’s

    The introduction of decimal in 1971 gave us petrol of 29 P a gallon, fish, chips & peas from a chip shop at 14 P, well these were Yorkshire prices, I have forgotten the price per pint but in the late 60's I can remember it being 2 shillings and a penny for a pint of Stones. Regards Alan
  10. Its Piccy Time!! 2018 Calendar Here We Come..

  11. The Authority Oversteps The Mark?

    That was indeed the case, was it the gravel pits just before Commissioners Cut? Regards Alan
  12. And Now For Something Really Serious

    Hi Ray, I bet they do not get many footballers taking part with the stingy BBC it would be well under their pay grade. Regards Alan
  13. Would You Buy An Edwina Burgee?

  14. The Authority Oversteps The Mark?

    I blame it on the cheese sandwich I had for lunch Regards Alan
  15. The Authority Oversteps The Mark?

    Whitlingham strikes me as an under used resource, yes there are some water activities on there and it would seem a good place to walk dogs. If it was connected to the river I am sure a marina complex with real visitor moorings might encourage more crews to visit the area and provide the city and the Southern Rivers with a new profitable resource. Regards Alan
