Nearly a month!

I am so sorry that there has been a lack of posts over the last month, it has been very busy here at Norbury with the school holidays and different staff off on their holidays and time has just slipped past really fast, Angela was going to do a blog last night but it was her birthday after all so I reckon she deserved a night off!

I don't really know where to start in terms of whats been going on here, lots and lots of boats have been going out, almost three day boats constantly since July, its only now that the bookings are dropping off for them, the hire boats have been busy as you would expect over the school holiday period, but again they have dropped right off now and it almost seems like winter has arrived early, still there is loads to do here, we have some big jobs on at the moment, and the painting dock is very very busy which is keeping Richard on his toes, the dry dock too is still busy and we seem to have a steady flow of boats using that. The trip boat has been very busy indeed and we are currently running fish and chip suppers on a Friday and a Saturday night, public trips on a Sunday and that's not forgetting the charters which are gaining in popularity, only last weekend the boat was out Friday night, Saturday afternoon, Saturday night, all day Sunday and then again on Sunday night for a 5 hour cruise from the Boat inn at Gnosall to the Hartley Arms at Wheaton Aston, I think you could say it was a definite booze cruise judging by the amount of beer they got through on the boat!

Between David, Angela and myself we will be writing regular blogs from now on so keep your eyes peeled.
