  1. Have a great weekend everyone despite looking at Seagypsy's finger above on my screen (ouch!) If you pass through Horning which I suspect most of you will ........... WR is moored on the river side between the New Inn and the Swan. Currently looking pretty smart thanks to winter work. All donations gratefully received :( Liz
  2. I may have posted these before but my brother took these one holiday shortly before closure at Beccles. For years I used to think I dreamt seeing this train until he sent me the scans. Liz
  3. What would I like to do? Take WR across Great Hoveton Broad - unfortunately that is not achievable! Otherwise I would like to canoe down from Aylsham to Coltishall and Bungay to Geldeston or even the little bit of the Yare up to Trowse - those are all achievable but I would prefer to be a bit younger
  4. https://awards.classicboat.co.uk/classic-boat-awards-2019-winners/ Scroll down and you will see that Countess of Light's restoration won last night! Personally thrilled as she is the big sister of WR. Well done Paul and Heidi! Liz
  5. It was noticed back in November when we downloaded the waypoints from our recent holiday in India - suddenly all the dates had reverted to 1999!
  6. I mentioned this topic to my husband this afternoon. He now knows why the date on our GPS keeps reverting to 1999 - a few months back he spent a long time wondering why!!!!
  7. I haven't got the time to answer this is detail until next week. As some will know WR was hired out through Little Ships for several years. They moved to France last August and gave me about 6 weeks notice - since then a lot of hard thinking and different options and counting up the bills, etc, and the answer is now NO and not skippered day trips either, that was even more expensive in some respects! Have no idea how I am going to continue paying the bills but...........there are a few possibilities.
  8. Are you sometimes moored on the Lea near Ware? Saw two ex Broads boats on a walk at the beginning of the year both with old reg numbers visible. Was one you? Liz
  9. It's been discussed on FB but Roland who many will know from Horning village marina and Southgates lost his fight against cancer last night. Those who live in Horning will miss seeing him on the river. A sad day for Horning Liz

    The EE/orange reception at Horning has improved to the extent I could make a phone call indoors occasionally last year!!
  11. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/earth/earthnews/3337559/Plan-to-allow-sea-to-flood-Norfolk-villages.html This might be several years old but never the less its still on the cards!
  12. Trust they are slimming world friendly. Oops think not but oh yum
  13. That's an insult to Barton Broad!!! Many moons ago in a different life, I worked on the Walk dead opposite the Market. It was great fun watching the hustle and bustle of all the different stalls. We would have Mr Smelly's name emblazoned on all the bin lorries in Norwich and they would be there picking up the rubbish. I remember it being rebuilt in the 1970s and it was strange seeing an empty space as well as a few rats as they demolished the stalls! The building I worked is as you can guess is now a coffee shop, but I went in there once and the loos, were still in the same place on the second floor almost unchanged!
  14. I commeserate (not 100% I've spelt correctly). May find out on Monday this year's 'damage' - not funny. Happy X to you all and Boris and Monty
