Saturday 30th September - Sunday 1st October 2017
Cruise Leaders: Steve and Lisa Burton (Sally)
If anyone would still like to join the cruise please can you let me know by Thursday 21st September with your food requests and if you are joining by boat or road.
Please see below plans for the weekend – subject to change if weather is not good.
Friday Evening – Mooring in Thurne Dyke ( or if you prefer on the EACC moorings, safety boat will be available to ferry people if needed).
Steve will be making his lovely pan of stew as he did last year. Ruth and Adrian have kindly agreed to let us use Abbey View as a nice warm venue for serving the stew and having a glass or two wine/beer. Please bring your own bowl and spoon. Abbey View is just a couple of minutes walk from Thurne Dyke. On the way back we may will call in to The Lion Pub to round off the evening with a night cap.
Stew will be served between 7.00pm and 9.00pm . Please can you let me know if you at joining us for stew so we know how big of a pan we need ( wouldn’t want anyone to go hungry)
Saturday - Leave Thurne around 11.00 am head to Cockshoot Dyke where we will have a posh picnic competition. We won’t just be looking at the food but at the style and presentation of the picnic. How posh can we make our boats look while serving a picnic?
Leave Cockshoot around 4.00pm and head to The New Inn ready for our evening meal.
As this year is Sally’s 90th birthday we though it would be fun for as many people as possible to wear an item of clothing from the 1920’s era ( hat, scarf, jacket, gloves) . This would make a lovely photograph.
Sunday – Leisurely breakfast, leave New Inn about 11.00 am and head to Ranworth. Weather permitting have some fun on the broad doing some admiralty sailing then raft up for lunch.
After lunch all head off home .
