  • Gathering Gazebo Appeal

    If you were at Salhouse this year, you will remember that we were lucky with the weather, which was a relief for those of us sorting tentage.

    Now we are trying to make sure future meets stay snug and dry even if it rains, and although we have a good tent, we admit it's a bit too small for our numbers.

    So we decided to launch an appeal for 'Gathering Gazebos'. We'd like to raise enough fund two pop-up gazebos, with sides, at about £100 each. Anyone who would like to contribute is asked to kindly donate through our Gathering Gazebos button.

    If we manage to raise more than this amount, funds will go to purchasing a £96 Tug O' War rope, which Griff plans to use to good effect at future gatherings...you have been warned

    Geldeston Lock - Repair

    Upstream of Geldeston the flood defences are all but gone and the river bank has naturalised. The former lock at Ellingham has been replaced by a weir, one of three unless my memory fails me which maintain sufficient depth of water to make the river navigable to canoes and punts but you have to port around the weirs. Last time I tried the passage, which is many years ago the river was all but blocked by Podgett's Island which seemed to be expanding (rather like me!) and scrub and brush stretched pretty much bank to bank. In places the rowing boat I was using was rubbing bottom so the depth was perhaps 8 - 10 inches Roger Deakin made the trip from the source of the river down to Geldeston in his canoe "Cigarette" for a BBC Radio program, and an extended clip from that is still available in the BBC archives HERE

    I suspect you may be right ..... I guess they want to avoid it being stuck open at all costs.

    I can't disagree with that... I love the idea of the quiet running. if she could pass below certain low bridges, I might find her a little prettier to look at too...

    2016 Version Of Swallows And Amazons

    It'll probably be sanitised as Black Dog Walk, despite the Latin origin of the name, sad.

    Please Don't Shoot The Messenger!

    You could look at it that way, or you could look back at it and wonder how much of our cabinet ministers very expensive time, which we pay for, was wasted on this garbage .........

    What's Makes You Support Your Team And Why?

    My Dad supported them. Born up North East. I spent my early years on the North East tip of Scotland never heard of football up there then. Moved down to the Wirral and when ask what team I supported. Asked what colour they were and as Red was my favourite colour have supported them ever since. Glad it was not blue!

  20. On Friday 17 August there will be intermittent interruptions to the water supply at Great Yarmouth Yacht Station. This will affect showers, toilets and the freshwater hoses and is due to emergency maintenance works being undertaken. We apologise for any inconvenience caused. Regards Alan

    That First Coffee

    I love my coffee and invested in one of these two years ago and never regretted it. Illy are my favourite beans! Whilst on our boat I use a thermos cafetière with Lazy Sundays coffee from Taylor’s. Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app

    Anyone Interested In Audiobooks

    never a truer word said. The Richard Burton recording really brings to life a work which otherwise is quite difficult to engage with.
  28. Would the BA have any info for a wild mooring? It's not their land or responsibility, could be a private land owner telling you to sod off. If you see a boat doing it go for ramming speed......
