Topics I've Started

how to get a doctor without perminant address.

07 May 2015 - 06:09 AM

I have just found out I am pregnant and figure I should sign up with a nearby gp. The only thing is we don't have any address other than "rising lane moorings". Our postal address is our family in Somerset or c/o lapworth post office.
What do we do? Any you can recommend?
Thanks Bex

New job - new mooring needed. Please help!

05 November 2014 - 12:28 PM

I've just got a new job as Emergency Care Assistant based at Staverton, Gloucestershire so need to find a new mooring for our 70ft narrow boat. Becky works at Leicester General Hospital and for various reasons needs to keep her job there for at least the next year or so.

We are therefore looking for moorings between the two that allow liveaboard, are cat friendly, and no more than about an hours drive to Staverton or Leicester! Would ideally have liked North Stratford (M42 corridor) but have so far tried Warings Green, Swallow Cruisers, Lady Lane Wharf, Lyons Boatyard and Alvechurch Marina and all say they have no spaces and no likelihood of any coming up in the near future.

Has anyone got any other ideas? Will have to widen our search so thinking of Coventry/Birmingham Fazeley/GU heading into Birmingham so any recommendations that are near good transport routes would be welcome.

I have until beginning of February (stoppages depending) to find new mooring as have 9 weeks training first.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Where have all the boats gone?

This is the bottom of Foxton locks on a Friday afternoon at the end of June - mid summer. 2014-06-27%2014.34.41.jpg?dl=1

We were there for about 3 hrs having lunch with some work colleagues and only saw 1 boat moving. Not a single boat on any of the visitor moorings except ours.
