Eastern Region Walk around Norwich

14 people enjoyed a guided walk around Norwich on Sunday 7th October. Keith and Carole Rowe were the tour leaders and took us to parts of the city we had not seen before. This was followed by an excellent lunch in a private dining room within a restaurant/cinema complex situated in a refurbished historic building.

Beccles Rally 25/26th August

The annual Eastern Region Rally took place again this year, brilliantly organised by Jane Neale. A record 26 boats turned up and on the Saturday we were treated to free cocktails by Pedros Restaurants, so generous, followed by a BBQ. Rain on Sunday did not deter us from the usual tea and cakes in the afternoon and a dinner was held in the Waveney Hotel later with entertainment by a mind reader. Spooky. We have booked for next year.

The next event will be a guided walk by Keith and Carole Rowe on Sunday 7th October. Please contact them for further details. The Christmas party will go ahead on 1st December. Details to follow.

Brundall Boat Show 19th May

The second Brundall boat show took place in excellent weather and everyone was pleased with the attendance despite a wedding. The club had a space just outside the NYA office and Linda Varney and I talked to both existing and prospective members. Three new ones signed up on the day and we expect others to do so soon. Other events over the weekend included a Broom Boats hog roast and a club BBQ on the island.

Eastern Region Fitting Out Supper 28th April and Beccles Rally

61 people attended this year's fitting out supper at Coldham Hall. We had an excellent meal followed by a talk by Dr John Packman, Chief Executive of the Broads Authority. A lively question and answer session took place afterwards, given such controversial  topics as river tolls and railway swing bridges. I think he got the message and is willing to meet us again. Brian Wilkins, chairman of NSBA, also spoke. Seven people from NYA and three from Broom Boats, including their new General Manager, Peter Reeve were also there. NYA have already made a donation to club funds and gave a free antifoul for a boat up to ten tons as a prize for the evening's raffle. Broom Boats gave a free valet as a prize.
