    Our Broad Scott

    I miss him. He was very supportive to me in my hour of need. I still read our many pm's when I'm looking for advice. We did have plans to meet up, unfortunately it never happened , then he was gone. Im quite proud that it was my suggestion to name this lounge after him and very thankful the mods agreed. A top lad so he was .
  2. My thoughts will be with you tomorrow, while you celebrate the life of Tan. My best wishes with you forever.
  3. So sorry to hear your sad news Alan. My thoughts are with you. Neil

    Hoseasons Brochure Is No More

    It was a Boxing Day tradition when I was wee boy. my family, gran and grandad, uncle aunt and two cousins . After a big lunchtime meal the adults would pour over the boats , and quite often the chalets too. The grand parents would often get a chalet , with extra rooms , and a selection of kids would stay with them , then kids would swap places during the holidays some leaving the boat to stay in chalet, some leaving the chalet to join the boat . And repeat . I remember the brochures being so well read and ended up in pieces , held together with tape!! We had a large boat one year , I think it was broads venture iv , could be wrong , and the chalet was at potter. I think the boat was from Stalham . A big heavy woody , which had the main pilot ( my uncle) cursing as the wind dictated which way it went!! Happy days indeed.

    Decreasing Number Of Hire Boats On Southern Broads

    Hi MM I certainly wasn't trying to demean anyone , it was tongue in cheek, a little dig at a post I didn't agree with . Falling out , making enemies , is not my remit , especially on a forum like this . I've enough of that in real life Another way to look at it , if an entrepreneur chooses to build a venue of some entertainment on the broads , and peeps who enjoy such a thing, choose to go in their droves, it then frees up a few more idyllic moorings perhaps . Maybe I was being a bit precious , but it was the old bug bear of " if hirers choose this" that pulled my tail . Anyway , no harm done hopefully, apologies if I came over wrong . Peace and love to all broads people

    The Poppy Appeal

    I have no idea, as I mentioned , I only recently found this out . It may be that all MIA recieved no monies, my granny certainly didn't . I was very young when she died , but apparently she often questioned where the money raised from the poppy appeal went , because she was left to raise a family of 2 without a breadwinner. I shall try and find out more about it , unfortunately all the people who knew her well are becoming less and less!

    The Poppy Appeal

    I just found this out recently My Granny ( no longer with us) lost her husband in the war. She never ever bought or wore a poppy. The reason being , her husbands body was never found, and was deemed MIA, she therefore never recieved a penny of help , he ( and others ) were treated and regarded as potential deserters. How utterly sad is that.

    Well Done Lewis

    5 is a great achievement without doubt, and hats off to him. He is not the most gracious person in my opinion , but that's his business. To say he would have won the title if he was driving a Ferrari is just far off the truth for me.

    What a legacy he has left. His family and friends can walk tall at these sad times.

    Decreasing Number Of Hire Boats On Southern Broads

    Hello Svenuk Ive hired from Pacific cruisers twice in the last 3 years and both times they have been top drawer. Especially in value for money, the two boats I had were competivly priced , very well turned out with everything you need on a boat. The staff just couldn't be any more helpful and friendly. Lovely people. Freedom boats I have never had the pleasure , but the yard and boats look great any time I have seen them, and I've never heard a complaint. let us know how you get on.
