    The Poppy Appeal

    If any of you are moored in Barton Broad area this week there is a Poppy Trail around the parish with boards outside the homes of those who fell in WW1
  3. Why are the council not claiming from the insurance of those who have damaged the 'roadside furniture' - I had Suffolk do that to me back in the 80's when I had an accident

    Feeling Ripped Off

    Yep - had an incorrect item of clothing delivered. I returned it in a jiffy bag for exchange, and they charged me twice what I paid in postage to send me the replacement back in the same, reused bag !

    Mine has scrapes in the enamel - remember to tape sail toggles before washing your sails in the bath, unless you really want to upset your other half.
  8. Now what have they done ? Put some little dashed lane guide lines down - OK, good, but made the exits one lane instead of two into one ( Wroxham / Norwich bound ) bad idea.
  9. My concern if fisherman were asked to pay a 'toll' is they may well then think they had as much entitlement to be on the mooring as a boat wishing to moor.
  10. I have - hence the line about dimensional inability to stay in lane
  11. The biggest problem with the roundabouts is the inability, whether mentally or dimensionally, of drivers to stay in lane whilst going round and exiting them Secondary issues I'd say are approach speeds and failure to give way to vehicles already on the roundabout and indicating correctly ( me ! - not been hit yet but I'd say it's only a matter of time, as I use the road several times a day )

    Has Anyone Seen Or Know?

    Now you mention it... chap with the greyhound ? Not seen him either this year. Very polite, quietly spoken. Ex RAF like me !
  13. Interestingly, since they did the work on the airport roundabout I've yet to see a car off there - and it was almost daily. Article in the EDP on one driver who got it wrong on another NDR roundabout recently http://www.edp24.co.uk/news/driver-calling-for-better-lighting-on-ndr-after-crashing-on-roundabout-1-5643471 some sympathy, but I was always taught to only drive as fast as you can see to stop - be that rain, fog or darkness....

    What I Saw Today... Safety Related.

    As I drove over Acle bridge with my daughter last week I commented that we'd already have a few fall in, and if we had a hot school holiday period it'd only be a matter of time before the first fatality. Seems some people want to go out of their way to make it a reality
