Shop front in the summer

Another sunny day at Norbury

It has certainly been a nice day for the day boaters who headed off bright and early this morning to enjoy their day aboard Victory and Defiant. We’ve still got a few day boats available during this week. So if you fancy a day out on the Shroppie, give us a call and book now – more information HERE! I’ll even do it for £75.00 per day per boat for readers of our blog (Monday 25th April to Friday 29th April only, but don’t tell Simon – hehe :-)). I’ve also discounted the hire boats for the next week or so – Click here for prices.

Phantom, Phoenix, Princess and Ember have all returned this morning, with many of the holiday makers not wanting to leave and make the trip home after having such an excellent holiday which was complimented by the fabulous weather that we are currently experiencing. We’ve turned all of the boats around and Princess, Ember, Sovereign Lady, Shropshire Blue, Rowington and Debdale have all left for another weeks cruise.

The new owners have arrived to collect Mayflower and are heading off on their travels. Hester, Bukittingi and Cornish have arrived for brokerage and I will be advertising them over the next couple of days. So keep your eye’s peeled on our website as you could grab yourself an Easter bargain with a guaranteed mooring here at Norbury.

After Fred finished turning the boats around he headed down to the dry dock to apply the final coats of blacking to the two boats currently on the dock. Ralph has checked the internals of all of the hire boats, attacked the grass that has decided to sprout up between the paving slabs in front of the shop (although there is still more to do) and has done the show rounds on the hire boats. Mick has also been checking internals on the boats and rectified a couple of faults on the shared boats and then has been fitting a replacement cooker to a private boat. Bernard arrived late due to a problem with his vehicle but then has checked all the engines on the boats that went out and has been doing a few jobs on one of the boats that we are currently offering for sale.

I’m off up to Ellesmere Port tonight to catch up with some friends and see all of the boats that have turned out for the boat gathering that is apparently in full swing in the grounds of the Boat Museum. I’ll try to remember to take the camera with me to get a few shots for you.

The weather forecast is for fine weather again tomorrow, so we will look forward to that! Enjoy your evening.

Until tomorrow.
