Mally - September Manager Of The Month

The coveted monthly award went to Mally despite bad knees and a penchant for the Amber Nectar. He was heard to comment when presented with the trophy ‘to do is to dare’ something he picked on his many jolly boy days out. His winnings are to be used to help keep his throat lubricated in the future.

The coveted monthly award went to Gavin. He found the time to attend and was presented with the trophy in between one of his globe trotting trips abroad looking for the sun.

Pub and Paddle 19

Pub and Paddle 19


At 11am in the Julian Year of 19 a band of Hawaiian explorers set off from the northern end of Riverside in search of historic architecture, a hostelry for some light refreshment, and people to trade with (in preparation for Brexit). The third pub and paddle outing passed off without any major incidents or Broads Authority intervention. The weather was perfect on the day, sunny with a light breeze, and everyone entered into the spirit (well beer anyway). On the day Steve did not even get his boots wet, although he did have a number of problems with his ‘coconut bra’ which had obviously not been fitted correctly, and his coxswain (i think I have heard this correctly) did get them out and back despite looking a whiter shade of pale throughout. The paddlers returned, later that day, to a seafarers feast at the Railway.

Mr Ewing said: “Once again we wanted to support The Nook Appeal who have done such a marvellous job in raising funds to complete the new East Anglian Children’s Hospice (EACH) being built just round the corner from the pub.
