  1. In my opinion it's all down to market forces Supply and demand If the demand wasn't there, prices would fall and when demand is high prices rise My son will soon be leaving his home for 28 years (at last!!!) as he has bought a new house from belway homes at a whopping 197K! The property is called "Lambeth" My first house was 14K! But all future Lambeths on the same estate are now priced at 220K Why? The first Lambeths on the estate have been snapped up and belway have "re-evaluated" the pricing structure and up the prices have gone, whilst some other properties have dropped slightly as one product offsets the other That's good business in my opinion and ensures that the estate continues to grow and the company is able to prosper I don't see any difference to a boat yard balancing the books and maximising the income from the products or services they have at their disposal
  2. Good news Grendel, which hopefully will help to ease her mind
  3. Barnes Brinkscraft created a list https://barnesbrinkcraft.co.uk/blog/pubs-shops-and-cafes-open-in-the-norfolk-broads-2020/?utm_source=Barnes+Brinkcraft&utm_campaign=75dd2c614b-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2020_03_11_03_50_COPY_02&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_10d1a611e8-75dd2c614b-39275211
  4. Watched everyone including the "baking" specials and Julie and I take our hat off to Dave for his endeavours. We loved every minute and they gave us many memories and laughs.. Also they gave us hope for the 4th July... The day the lockdown is eased and the Broads is available again for those who love the area Thanks Dave!!
  5. Yep... Its called contingency planning which every reputable organisation should do Glad to see this is happening
  6. I am a live and let live kinda guy and like to see stag and hen do`s on the broads and the many pirate flags flying in the wind as excited families head up or down river. (Usually on Richardsons Challenger for some reason!!) I enjoy the peace and tranquillity which is always in abundance on the broads, the towns, villages and local pubs I enjoy the dogs walks, the sound of sails in the wind as the yachts glide by and the sight of a wherry in full sail or being pushed through Ludham Bridge by a pilot I love the sight of the young, the athletic, the old and those with disabilities enjoying various elements on the rivers At times people do things which makes me shake my head, speak to them about it or report them to the authorities, but these a few and far between as the vast majority of people enjoy the area with the greatest respect given to others and the surroundings So a little perspective needs to be had.
  7. Week commencing the 4th July might be a tad busy.... Bit like when McDonald's and Primark first opened again!
  8. Agree Although I still think it was a ludicrous decision in the first place! Obviously decided whilst completing a risk assessment which they have little or no knowledge how to complete.
  9. They do appear to be making some steps towards a re-opening of the Berney Arm's, which I would certainly welcome https://www.edp24.co.uk/news/berney-arms-pub-could-be-set-to-re-open-1-6705307
  10. Excellent video Malcolm Especially for your first one, as you wouldn't have known Looked a gorgeous day Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
  11. Smile..... You know you want to! 😂😂🤣🤣
  12. No worries MM When this poxy lockdown is lifted it would be good to get moored up with a few of us, have a laugh, a few beers and talk the usual boating, politics or whatever bo*****s people feel is worthy until the sun has well and truly gone down and the beds are calling! Take care
  13. I think this would look great outside Roy's and keep the loud minority happy 🤣😂
  14. Certainly not my views as you say Grendel and I did indeed post it for information as we Broads lovers come from far and wide and members of this forum may be interested in local statues and monuments under the scope of the group which also appears to dislike Donald Trump...(I join them in that opinion!)
