    It would appear to be true they are selling the boats and running as a private marina they are still going to let the holiday properties Ray
  3. Hi Simon It was a bit wet at the time not surprised you were not out for long You are in a good pub there staff are friendly and it has a welcome atmosphere Ray PS Like you I was heading for a closed Tea room
  4. Hi Simon Saw the boat at Reedham lunchtime but no sign of you assume you were keeping warm somewhere
  5. I was in Wroxham yesterday afternoon and it poured down for about an hour grey and overcast for the rest of the afternoon
  6. The amount of times Richardsons send guys to get there boats through It may be a cost effective option!! Ray
  7. Can I suggest we amend heading The moorings are available it is power that is not on. Ray
  8. I am not defending The Ferry in any way but I believe they are looking for staff it is a rural location and I know that both the Lord Nelson and Ship have had similar problems During the summer The Ship was not serving food on one occasion due to staff problems and I have seen a similar sign outside the Lord Nelson as well. I think they are The winter hours for the Ferry but it does seem strange to start those hours before October half term Ray
  9. Having visited at least three times over the summer the current set up of the cafe with a small section of foods and consumables for sale works well' it always seems busy. Why do we want another information centre BA closed Ranworth Potter Heigham and Beccles centre's because of low visitor numbers yet all these three places attract more visitors than Acle ever can Ray
  10. Hi Amjams If you did not instruct him to do work do not pay it send back and explain you did not order the work
  11. For those forum members interested Freedom have just added Commanding Freedom for hire on there website Ray
  12. Could you not move one from each side
  13. I visited the cafe there yesterday it was very busy with most outside tables in use. the building looked fit for purpose was clean and had obviously been repainted not derelict and unuseable as an ear!her BA statement
  14. Totally agree with you Howard it could be a really good pub with some positive management Ray
  15. Try Pacific cruisers Loddon
  16. The pubs are all specifically named which is very rare so demolition and rebuild would need some very persuasive arguments but it is not impossible if the case was strong enough
  17. Under the Local Plan They would have to prove the pub was not viable and that they had marketed it for sale at a commercial value for a minimum of year and prove it also the community asset would be considered As the Local plan and it is the only one that I have seen that does names the pubs specifically it would be very difficult The local planning authority down here tore the viability statement appart for the application locally and that is nowhere near an asset he broads pubs are.
  18. Back home now so able to check The new Broads plan issued in May 2019 as a specific policy for dealing with Public Houses SSPUBS it can be found on page 209 of the document which is on the BA website It seeks to protect virtually all the broads pubs including The Yare being to turned into homes or other commercial use It states " Public houses will be protected in their Public house use as key parts of community visitor and boating facilities as well as for their individual contribution to such facilities" Indeed here in Kent an application to turn a pub into house as been refused this week on the basis of the loss of a community asset Ray
  19. The Broads Authority new local plan which came into effect in May specifically states they will resist all pub closures I cannot details I am away at the moment but will detail over the weekend
