  1. Ranworth moorings have asked people not to go to their boats and I'm fine with that. What would be the point, oh and the Rangers aren't going round in May for their usual poke around
  2. It's got to be either Upton dyke or Coltishall lock
  3. Just to add, ML Yare is the last wooden top launch in the BA fleet and is over 40 years old, still looks great just out of refit
  4. Black Horse opens Easter Saturday for 1 week. It then opens again Spring Bank holiday Saturday. Finally closes for winter on the 31st October. Hope this helps
  5. This was sent to all employees today, I thought members might be interested in another point of view. Broads Authority Press Statement The Broads Authority removed Mr James Knight from the Navigation Committee on 28 September 2018. The decision follows an internal Code of Conduct complaint about repeated comments published by Mr Knight accusing staff of deliberately misleading Members. A full investigation by an independent barrister found no evidence to support Mr Knight’s serious public accusations. The Broads Authority’s Hearings Committee carefully considered the barrister's report alongside evidence from Mr Knight and other witnesses before concluding that Mr Knight had breached the Authority's Code of Conduct. The Hearings Committee expressed the view that, although Mr Knight's actions were incompatible with his co-opted membership of the Authority's Navigation Committee, he should nevertheless be offered a final opportunity to retract his statements and apologise before recommending his removal. Mr Knight chose not to take the opportunity extended to him to draw a line under the matter leaving the Authority no alternative but to remove him. Background note for Editors Last summer Mr James Knight, a co-opted member of the Broads Authority’s Navigation Committee, publicly alleged that officers of the Authority had deliberately and wilfully misled the Planning Committee. Mr Knight’s allegations were thoroughly investigated and it was concluded that none of them had any substance. Mr Knight was asked four times to either substantiate his allegations or retract his comments. A Code of Conduct Complaint by another Member concerning the same matter was investigated by an independent barrister who concluded that there was no evidence to support Mr Knight’s assertion and that he had breached the Authority’s Code of Conduct in respect of Leadership and Equality and Respect. On 12th September 2018 a panel of three Broads Authority Members, advised by an independent person, considered the complaint, the report of the independent barrister and evidence from Mr Knight and other witnesses. The Panel concluded that Mr Knight had failed to treat others, particularly the Authority’s officers, with respect. He was given 7 days to retract his comments and apologise. When this was not forthcoming the Panel felt that, if this was not forthcoming, it would have no alternative other than to recommend to the Authority that Mr Knight be removed from the Navigation Committee. On Friday 28th September the Broads Authority Board considered the report of the Hearings Committee and the absence of a retraction and apology. The Board decided to remove Mr Knight from the Navigation Committee with immediate effect. A replacement will be appointed from the 1st April 2019 as part of the recruitment process for the Committee which is already underway. Please note: The hearings had to be taken in private because of Local Government provisions for the protection of officers and legal considerations due to the unjustified accusations of malfeasance against those officers, who were not parties to the complaint
  6. the vessel was Norada, a plank gave way, it's now back at Wroxham drying out.
  7. Potter bridge, not before time
  8. Guessing it was something to do with carbon monoxide.
  9. Dnks34, I can't be 100% sure, but every penny has to be accounted for and allocated to a budget, so it would be very easy to find out how this was funded. We have to jump through hoops to make sure what we do comes out of the correct budget for the job we are doing, right down to nuts and bolts for a countryside site maintenance. It is very important to the BA that the correct funding is used at all times. So as I said before, I would be gobsmacked if the signs came from the toll account.
  10. What ever anyone believes to be Dr Packham reasons for installing signs at rail stations, it won't be coming out of tolls income.
  11. I can't imagine for 1 minute that nav money is being spent on this,,,,,,not a chance!
  12. I believe the link from Norfolk Nog and the arrest that Wildfuzz relates are two different persons.
  13. Vanessan the yacht stations and TIC's don't open until April, but you will be able to swop old cards when they do. If you require the new cards before April, Yare house or the Rangers should be able to help you.
