What a fabulous new business supporter we have recruited – Cannells by the River at Reedham – deli, shop and patisserie.   Cannells is the perfect place to pop in to for delicious food and drink all sourced locally, where possible.    They also offer an excellent range of local produce to purchase – and great for gifts.

We are grateful to Chris, Emma and Elliot for their support in displaying our merchandise including the Broads by Bike books and wildlife badges.

A grant has been awarded to the iconic Wherry Maud towards the purchase of a more powerful support vessel.  The previous tender was found to lack power and the 6hp well-worn outboard was not sufficient resulting,  on occasions when crossing Breydon Water, having to use two dinghies.

It was considered that a tender with an inboard engine should be purchased to enable more sailings and to cope with the inconsistency of weather conditions.  A suitable boat was being built and completed in the summer of 2021.  It is of the same era as “Maud” and looks much more traditional. The engine is a Nanni 20hp diesel, capable of pushing “Maud” against wind and tide.   We wish Wherry Maud well with her new tender.

The iconic Wherry Maud has received £1,000 towards the purchase of a new tender with an inboard engine which was more powerful than their previous support vessel and will significantly help them to offer more sailings for visitors to enjoy.   We are pleased, once again, to have been able to support this historic and loved wherry.
