What a lovely afternoon Members enjoyed at Salhouse Broad on Saturday 18th May.

Kelly, the Ranger, gave a guided tour of the Broad and we heard all about the Broads Discovery Hub from Dave Ansell, the Project Manager.  This was followed by amazing tea and cake, courtesy of  The Hungry Otter.  All of this rounded off with a canoe/kayak paddle for those that wished it.

Our grateful thanks to all involved and to our Members for joining us.    Oh, and the weather was perfect!

We are delighted to showcase one of the smallest, oldest and most generous  business supporters.  Maycraft is a small family business run by Harry May and James May, based at Potter Heigham.  They offer a range of services including boat hire and boat maintenance and repairs.  Despite being flooded over the past few months they continue to support our important work.  In total, they have donated £3,000 to the Broads Trust and we are very grateful.  Thank you Maycraft.

We are delighted that we shall be holding our next Member-only annual event at the stunning Salhouse Broad this year.  Our grateful thanks to the Salhouse Estate.

Members will have the opportunity to have a guided tour of the Broad by the Ranger and learn of its unique history and biodiversity and see the projects which have received a grant from the Broads Trust/Love the Broads.  These will include the exciting Night Skies platform and the Broads Discovery Hub.

After the tour there will be refreshments at the amazing Hungry Otter which has raised so much funding for our work.

And if that’s not enough,  Members can take a canoe or kayak trip around the Broad.

Funds raised from our Membership scheme go directly to help to keep the Broads National Park remain special.

Another massive thank you to The Hungry Otter overlooking the beautiful Salhouse Broad for their fantastic support and to their fabulous customers that have kindly donated to Love the Broads in 2023.  An amazing £600 raised by Helen, Chris and their customers.

The Hungry Otter raises donations by selling Love the Broads wildlife badges.  They also add a small voluntary donation of 10p onto ice creams and cookies and sell second hand books with donations being collected for our charity.

Helen says “I became a Love the Broads partner in order to give something back to the wonderful area I am lucky enough to work in and the charity is focussed on providing services and enhancing the visitor experience for those visiting and living in the Broads. I also feel that all businesses, whether large or small, should try to do what they can for our local areas.  Every little bit helps and we would all be so much better off if everyone helped. I can’t lie, it makes me feel good about myself and the business to be helping a local charity!”

What a difference a small business can make to help our wonderful environment in the Broads National Park.  We are very grateful.
