  1. A Marina Resident, Peter Andrews, left CRT about £150,000 in his will with the wish that it be used to provide a wheelchair friendly bridge to replace the wooden ladder bridge. CRT accepted the monies but do not appear to be doing anything about the new bridge. Maybe they have something in the pipeline.
  2. Ray Thanks, its taken a lot of persuading to get Tim to cancel. I see from CRT e mail today they would have stopped us anyway. Hope to see you again soon.
  3. Just to confirm the Braunston Historic Boat Rally 2020 has been cancelled. It is hoped to hold it at the end if June 2021 when hopefully President will be back in steam with the help of Tim's £20,000 donation. Sorry you have been notified in this way but i havent had time to write or e mail everyone.
  4. Ray In some ways it will be very sad if her body is found in the canal after so many years but it would give closure to the family.
  5. At the time of the incident the Police said it was arson. Nobody injured.
  6. Ian I have volunteered in the last 12 months so will e mail as you suggest
  7. Ian You may recall that i came second to you in the last election. I have notcstood again as i have returned to full time employment. I still volunteer but have not been given a vote in the volunteer section this time around. I have been given a vote in the business section and the boaters section. How can the voting be fair if eligible voters are not invited to vote? Good luck by the way.
  8. Chris i have the current owners contact details. Call me at Braunston Marina. regards Graham 01788 891393
  9. Alsn Just wanted to stop the speculation. A very sad subject to comment on.
  10. Sadly the info in the first post is correct. I am sure the emergency services will issue more information when the time is right.
  11. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gybdbGlHoRk#action=share Interesting video of this years Rally
  12. The clothes stall didnt come last year due to family health issues and didnt respond to my invitation to join us this year. It couldnt be car park related in their case. I will take on board the number of Chuggers and will try and reduce them next year. If you know of any interesting traders that might want to attend please let me have their details and i will contact them.
  13. Alan the car park numbers were down as were the bar takings. Still counting monies etc. So may be able to report more soon. Tim is aware of the comments about Car Parking but clearly wont budge on the price. Several traders said they wont come back next year if the charge stays the same. I had to do dome proper wheeler dealing this year to get the number of traders we had. Not sure if i will have the energy or enthusiasm to do the same next year. I dont think the heat helped on Saturday. Welton, another close by village, had a soap box derby and they suffered with lower numbers so it was either the heat or B..x.t that reduced the numbers. Tim enjoyed the weekend and announced he will put the Rally on again next year. I have had a number of e mails to work today commenting on the car park price so it looks as though this is the view of most people.
