    what would cause that, screed poured while concrete is still green? or just a bad mix?

    My Day

    Brilliant, just brilliant. Arrived at clients. It’s all ready to go, that is a 20m2 porcelain floor tiling job. They have removed everything including laminate floor coverings. Only slight snag. The finishing screed is debonding from the concrete sub floor. This property is just two years old. (RAF camp at Hayfield) I reckon at least 4 hours to remove / clean / dispose. Plus increased invoice for clients. First thing Monday morning and I’m behind on weekly diary already Griff

    I've just spoken to Broads Control, who have spoken to the Ranger who unlocks/locks the Broad. Officially the last day its open is the Sunday after Easter, but as Marshman says actually when it gets locked does depend on when the Ranger is passing which could be Monday morning.

    To be honest, I doubt it is as precise as the OP would like!! This is Norfolk after all!! My guess is it depends on whether a Ranger is about, or in the area on the day in question!! Lets not get too precise about these things but it is the Rangers who do it.

    2 or 3 years ago I decided to have a cruise round there on the Saturday morning after easter. On arrival there was a BA launch at the entrance. They told me I could have my cruise before locking the gate and they closed it as I came back out and locked it.

    My Day

    Yesterday I spent all day at our local community centre for the dress rehearsal for our pantomime Goldilocks and the Three Bears, it is our first night this evening. Sadly today we are attending my Father in Law's funeral in Manchester.

    The Broad is in the ownership of the Blofield estate, Back in the 1949 they tried to close it entirely as they did Hoveton Great Broad, Lead by Herbert Woods, about 30 men reopened the broad . The police were involved, and eventually compromise was made that the broad would be opened for the summers. Sadly no one forced the reopening of any other broads that were closed. Blofield Estate hold the Keys and control the water, however for safety and other reasons I believe BA hold a set. Recently we had a club member who had a terminal illness and he requested a final sail on Black Horse / Hoveton Little Broad. We are greatful the The Estate for allowing us in and quite a few Yeoman went up there for a final hours sailing with him...

    Thanks AEJB, but what does that actually mean in practice? It opens on Easter Saturday, but does it close on Friday 26th (1 week = 7 days), Saturday 27th (1 week = 7 nights) or on Sunday 28th (might as well include the weekend)? This sort of makes sense, but does anyone know for sure? Is the BA responsible for its opening and closing? I think I will give them a call and ask.

    My Day

    I have spent a second weekend decorating the hall stairs and landing. 20 litres of emulsion for the walls, 10 litres for the ceilings, 5 litres of undercoat and 10 litres of gloss. 15 doors and acres of walls. I didn't think it needed doing but Matron had other ideas. I hate decorating, everything hurts and it is a waste of boating time. I have now booked a decorator to come in and finish it.

    Hey, leave the Welsh alone! It's funny how home countries folks have the rise taken out of them Norfolk included ,but try it when the recipient is a West Indian or a Pakistani or other and everyone is up in arms, same with religion you can say what you like if it's directed at a Christian not so easy to mickey take some others! Who wrote all these rules anyway?

    My Day

    Been sailing in ever decreasing circles today, it was the Martin Dugdale trophy, Tino was taken Ill while sailing some years ago and shortly after died.. His family were there as usual for the event. The Race which was very well attended, was won by a young lady on a laser, we came err ....somewhere. We did have trouble with a large day boat, which decided to go from the right hand bank to the left aiming for horning staithe, crossing in front of us as we tacked in that direction. Instead of going in nose first it suddenly went parallel to the bank in then tried to reverse in, of course that won't happen, so their nose drifted out and hit us, snagging on our side stays.

    Black Horse opens Easter Saturday for 1 week. It then opens again Spring Bank holiday Saturday. Finally closes for winter on the 31st October. Hope this helps

    Hoveton Little Broad

    Its also known as Black Horse Broad, its up stream from the last bungalow at Horning, same bank as the sailing club,going towards Wroxham. Its open from Easter to Mid September.

    Hoveton Little Broad

    Hoveton little broad is the proper name for what is known as black horse broad. It gained the name of black horse after the pub that used to be on the Hoveton Horning road on the other side of the road from the broad. The broad , bewilderwood and that section of road down to the dip with the stream is in Hoveton parish. Then programme shows horning sailing club, sailing on the 21st on the broad, IIRC it's open both weekends. It's not the only broad to have become known by something different, what is known as Sutton broad used to be called Stalham broad..

    Which one is Hoveton Little Broad, is it in the trees to the east of Wroham Broad?. If so, i think the entrance was well and truly overgrown, or have they cleared the access in the banks?.

    I just looked on the Broads Authority website where the information was as vague as that which you already have. Maybe worth contacting them to ask?
