Richard did suggest to me a few days ago that the Chet was being closed and I have to say that I did mentally think Oh Dear living in California has made him as ‘flackey’ as the rest of them. However there is a serious proposal that the Chet should be ’considered to be closed’ during daylight hours from the 30 April to 4th May and 21st May to 25th May. Needless to the unacceptability of the suggestion is being made very forcefully along with substantial claims for business interruption were it to happen.
Were it to go ahead there would of course perhaps be winners in that being for the time not being adjacent we might invite water skiers and wake boarders to come and help cut back the encroaching reed beds by enjoying themselves on a body of water with a lack of boats!
Nutters Piling at the mouth of the Chet again, I have had words with the 'Waterways Officer' who seemed suprised that it might be a problem given it was not actually during bank holiday weeks. Given that we have still got a dozen hirecraft a couple of hundred private boats and the broads only salvage service down here one does wonder sometimes.
