  4. Beautiful day today after the high winds and rain yesterday Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
  5. Just bought 20 from Brooms main reception and they had loads... So Mrs B can stop moaning now.. Errr.. I mean, can relax now! 😉 Had a great meal at the Ferry House last night and you are right, in that you pay £8 for the card behind the bar, but get £5 back when you return the used card, so in essence it costs you £3 for electric, free mooring, free water, great spot and a first class pub with brilliant dog friendly staff and great food..
  6. I will ensure I pre-order mine in future, as I never realised how hard they are to come by on the broads in winter Most posts I checked appear to have a full recycle card deposit, so even they haven't been emptied, which suggests that the broads isn't really geared up for winter boaters, unless they are self sufficient It's all a big learning curve for us as we have gone from hirers in the summer months to shareholders out on the broads outside the main season Still loving it though!

  11. Really having an electrical nightmare this week. Arrived at Brooms on Saturday and thought I would pop to the office to buy some cards for the week and the office was shut. Not to worry though as we intended to go to the New Inn at Rockland St Mary and they stock them... Errrrrr... nope! Response was that they had sold out, as someone came in and bought the last of their stock.. But, not to matter as the post office is only a 15 minutes walk and they stock them.... Wrong again....sold out and a re-order had not arrived yet! Never mind, I am sure there are spares in the skippers manual on board. Get to the envelope which states 9 electric card's (please replace), but the 9 had been crossed out and it was written over with 3 electric card's. I opened the envelope and there was one (1) card.. I had to use it, but I will replace it...I promise! Next day we made our way down the Chet to Loddon Staithe and the first job was to visit Bridge Stores and stock up on electric card's.... Wrong again....sold out! They have ordered more, but they haven't arrived yet, and a guy came in and bought all their stock! (There is a theme here!) But not to be deterred as Bridge Stores staff said we should try Rosie Lee's Tea Shop, next door "Excuse me, do you have any of the BA Electric Card's please?" "Yes, I have 2 left" was the reply! She then went on to say that she also was waiting for an order as a gentleman came in and asked if he could buy her stock of cards, but she refused to sell them all, keeping 2 back for another customer Thankfully I was that customer She did say, that the BA were really slow at re-stocking and she didn't understand why, but she would ring them again to chase up Personally I think the electric posts should be able to accept contactless payments from debit cards or Apple or Google pay direct from your phone as the card system appears to be flawed if my experience is anything to go by We are now at the Ferry House and a table is booked for the evening and we are hooked up to their own electric posts, which thankfully the Ferry House provides the cards for! It's a bit windy and wet today, but we have not got far to walk... Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app

  13. Happy Anniversary Malcolm and Deb's (for yesterday) We are at Rockland St Mary for the evening, but hope to catch up with you soon Roxy and Yogi are settling in nicely Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
  14. Well after buying shares in Moonlight Shadow in October, we take her out for our first week tomorrow with our 2 Newfoundlands Roxy (black girl) and Yogi (brown boy) tomorrow We are meeting Trevor from BCBM at lunch time for the formal induction and then we will be on the water We have no definite plans and we don't intend travelling far, as this week will be about us getting to know all about MS We will post updates and pictures, but our Broads experiences over the years have focused on our Newfies and so I guess they will feature heavily over the next week (And no....Yogi won't be allowed on the furniture!)
