    Cleaning Up The Lego

    My mum's (she's 87 this year) original Bayco set from her childhood is still with her, , well looked after and now being enjoyed by the fourth generation of the family. Anyone remember Stickle Bricks? We still have ours, also now enjoyed by her great grand children. My collection of Corgi and Dinky cars are now classics in their own right, not that there is much paint left on any of them or the hall skirting boards! They have done some miles across the floors over the years and continue to give sterling service. I noticed the little statue of Graham Hill laid in the bottom of the toy cars box the other day, can anyone else remember which toy car he came with?

    Beccles Old Bridge Passage In March

    6'9" under Beccles is ok on normal tides. You may need to wait an hour or two if your timings are out but not days!

    Hoseasons 83 Brochure Wanted

    You'll all be pleased to hear Phoenix is still going strong and is still on the Broads. She is normally out and about from June to August when her owners sneak an extended holiday on board. Here she is just a few months ago...

    Private Boat Hire Request

    I would also agree that looking round and trying as many boats as possible is a good move before committing to ownership. There are many on here that have discovered that what they actually want and what they think they want are worlds apart. Buying the wrong boat could lead to a very shaky start for your maritime adventures.

    A Real Treat - Sherz And Linz 2018 Boat Trip

    I believe hire boats are classed as public places just like busses, trains, pubs and taxi's etc, therefore smoking on board is no longer legal. Excellent film though, I have just binge watched their previous two as well while waiting for undercoat to dry

    Another One Bites The Dust

    We, as a society, really do need to start looking at the value of these things rather than the cost. A decent events takings can be the difference between staying in business or not for some seaside establishments and b&b's. Those businesses pay rates and employ people. The Beale boat show may not have sold many boats on site but it did encourage people to try boating, some of whom will have gone on to buy a secondhand boat elsewhere meaning a new boat was still sold but to someone further up the food chain. Take a look at Beccles. There is something going on almost every weekend from Easter onwards, many events not profitable, but purely aimed at bringing people, and money, into the town. There are no rows of empty shops and Beccles has attracted some big name stores as well. You have to see the value in these things.
