    The Reed And Rhond Anchor

    The Rred and Rhond Anchor is about to open. Please come as your favourite Arthur Ransome Character
  2. Ladies and gentlemen, I wish to announce the opening of the NBN Virtual Pub. It is in the extension of the aBroadscot Lounge and open every Tuesday fro 8.30 to 9.30 or until the drinkers stagger off home. I am your volunteer landlady for this evening, but the license allows others to pull the pints as time goes on, this is a community pub after all. Just go to http://www.nbnquiz.co.uk/chat/index.php and login, DO NOT PUT IN A PASSWORD See you there?
  3. 'Snow White Blood Red' is another great read if Ransome's own story interests you.

    What A Difference A Week Makes.

    With 'that thing' you never realised you needed until you saw it on offer? i just spent £10 on 8 reels of overlocker thread from Lidl, essential purchase there!

    Seems like Dylan is leaving his mark on the Wetshed one way and another.

    It reminds me of The Jumblies by Edward Lear; 'They went to sea in a sieve they did'

    Sos Lost Dog

    Doug suggests it could be the people who were returning on Sedgemoor at about 3 to the Wetshed. The contact number for Sedgemoor should be on the board at the entrance to the Wetshed. Just a thought.

    Beccles Wooden Boat Show

    Oh brilliant, hope Charlie enjoys it.

    Beccles Wooden Boat Show

    That is how we see Brilliant, hopefully, when we relaunch next year, she will be in a better condition than she has been for many years. You have to say it's irrational, but these boats have their own personalities, I can't explain it.

    Beccles Wooden Boat Show

    If you haven't been to this event, it's a unique opportunity to visit aboard wooden boats and talk with their custodians about the work they do to keep these lovely pieces of Broads History going for a next generation. I say 'custodians' rather than owners because that is how it feels to own one of these special craft.
  21. Sorry to announce that we have withdrawn the Summer Meet from the NBN Calendar; always a smaller attendance than the big Spring Gathering; we were unable to have a team member as organiser this year, and we have let Beccles YS know that NBN are not there in any official capacity. That said, the individual boat bookings are not cancelled unless owners wish to cancel themselves, so a few folk will be about and moored together. We hope they have a good weekend.

    Summer/autumn Gathering August 2018

    This event is now an informal get together and not an NBN Event, there will be a few Forum members there as individuals. Apologies for any disappointment. We have decided that in future there will be the one big Gathering in Spring.
