Nbn Meet 15th May. Allowed To Stay On Boats 17th May. Any Ideas?


Recommended Posts

the big question is will gatherings (informal or formal be allowed, the meet will of necessity bring many people together in self contained accommodation (cant think of a better description of that than a boat) but when we arrive, will we all need to set up a barrier round the stern of our boats?, or will we by the time we are all at salhouse be able to mix?

The rule of six outdoors is re-introduced on the 29th March and on the 17th May is scrapped. At the same time, up to a 1000 people or half full at indoor sports venues and up to 4000 people or half full allowed at outdoor venues. 

You will be 48hrs shy of such a massive rule change it is very debatable a small gathering in Norfolk is going to compare to potentially 4000 people meeting in a football stadium 48 hrs later.

Technically I guess it would be against the law, but I would suggest it is very much down to your conscience, ultimately if the rules are being relaxed 48 hrs later, your not going to make much difference in the grand scheme of things. If the government feels happy at letting multiple meetings of quite large crowds to occur from the 17th May, is anyone going to worry about a minor misdemeanor the Saturday before. Especially if it's not shouted from the rooftops.

Dont forget all these dates are dependent upon,infection, death  rates remaining  steady  if they jump  like they've done previously.The time table may change.

On the other hand, the optimistic view is the vaccine is doing it's job. We didn't have that last time around, and the rates continue to fall and the dates start to feel like we could have moved faster but are being sensible. I must confess at this stage nightclubs open on the 21st June seems very optimistic, but you have to consider no dates were set last year for the remainder of society to open up. That has to be seen as a government more sure than last year of how things could progress. Lets hope so. I cannot wait to get back in a night club again :default_drinks::default_drinks:

Actually to be honest the one thing I really want to be able to do is just stand at the bar again. Yes I was glad when pubs opened again last year, but it just never quite got back to normal. Being able to stand up after a meal and have a final pint or two at the bar and chat with whoever has been really missed.

As it stands , the proposed meet date is two days prior to the relaxing of the legislation permitting outside gatherings and as such it would be ill advised for the NBN to promote or sanction such a gathering , unless the current rules change I cannot see the NBN meeting taking place officially .

yes, advertising an event like this on social media is equivalent to shouting it from the rooftops, and also this forum cannot be seen to be promoting something illegal no matter how minor, nothing preventing people from meeting mates but nothing official is planned and nothing even in the pipeline.

 

hope this helps

Perhaps see how things go over the next few weeks, could there be a chance of a meet later in the year?  I’d vote for the last weekend in August but that’s mainly because we will on the northern Broads then!  😉

The May date is too soon to do the NBN meet. Later in the year sounds much more realistic. 
What can happen now is that the planning can get going and give people something to look forward to. 
Watch this space.

Still local travel only?

The government statement says - (in the section no earlier than 12 April)

‘UK domestic holidays away from home permitted, with self-contained accommodation able to reopen for use by members of the same household’.
