  1. Hi Marco,like you we moved here 18 years ago and love it .we have had many boats in Forty years from a small Shetland with outboard ,a petrol Freeman then a Princess 30 all great in their own way but have had a Bounty 28 for 15 years now ,we realised we wanted certain features which had to be a full size separate bedroom ,large shower,good gally,large windrow area with seating inside that could convert to sleep two and out side seating area and a sliding roof,which can be opened or shut in seconds .We have been to every corner of the Broads under all the bridges and don’t feel that WE coul
  2. Hi,we moved here to the edge of a market town in North Norfolk 18 years ago and love it.We considered country and coast but are so pleased we ended up here now as we are getting older and benefit from the close proximity of every thing we need.For us it has worked out well and would never considered moving back.
  3. Did not realise Earles Court was gone,had an atmosphere of its own and was a good day out.
  4. Thank you all for your hard work and time,Respect to all.🤗
  5. Thank you Grendel for comments,I posted the thread to see how the. Numbers allowed would affect the leisure industry and possible outcomes or to the solutions that could apply to the type of cases mentioned.It was never intended to become yet another political debate ,of which there are many .I would still like to here comments about the way these visitors and providers can face this situation when these new limits come into force ?
  6. Reading the news this morning and the new restrictions made me think of the implications for the holiday industry in and around Norfolk ? Many boats and holiday rentals cater for up to 10 or 12 people who have bookings ? I read elsewhere of 7 people booked on a boat from Monday ,do they leave one person out ?,get refunds ? Or rebook ? Just as the industry was beginning to settle down a bit 😮
  7. Heard from a source at B A that there was many hundreds of private boat tolls unpaid ,surely they can’t take legal action against them all ?
  8. When we moored in St Neots we were the butt of many jokes in the clubhouse about our Freeman having a “ wallpapered toilet compartment “ but the truth was the walls would have taken forever to restore, so we did some good sealing and applied a very heavy duty cork patterned Vynl wall covering which did the job ,looked good and was still sound some ten years later. We also relined the ceiling fixing it with a spray on carpet glue ,looked as good as our friends Freeman who paid £500 for theirs.Had the satisfaction of having done the jobs our selves.🤗
  9. Are you still looking ? I may be able to help ,I’m in North Norfolk but moor on the Northern Broads 😊
  10. Interesting thread,still have my layout which is going up to the Grandchildren when allowed.to travel Spent two years as a volunteer modeller at Wroxham Miniature worlds ,very large layouts but could nut be done in the detail shown here,but building base boards ,track ,buildings ,mountains and animations was all great fun and have been running for a few years now.Well worth a visit
