There are some insightful comments under that article.

From the article, ”Mr Packman said he hoped the review would put more pressure on central government to provide opportunities for schoolchildren to visit the Broads. He said: “There is such a willingness from schools to visit us, but also limited resources for them to be able to.

Through our Water, Mills and Marshes project, we had the opportunity to work with some 600 children from schools in Lowestoft and had really positive feedback. Some of the children said the visits were the best days of their lives.”


If the parents of local children want to bring them to the Broads, there is every opportunity for them to do so. Children from all over the country already come to the Broads on holiday.

I think what John Packman is thinking of is getting them into a BA-controlled environment early, keep plugging the BNP and they will grow up believing it. Maybe he is a student of Aristotle, to who the maxim “Give me the child for his first seven years, and I'll give you the man” has been attributed.

Quite possibly the most cynical thing I have ever read.

You haven't read the BA's response to the Glover Review, then?

I would like to endorse Paladin's conclusions & comment on this topic.

JP is undoubtedly going well outside the box with his latest aspirations.

As reported earlier in EDP the JP did meet up with Julian Glover some months ago and no doubt was given a steer on the sort of ideas they would be able to look at ?

That isn’t as much of a ‘nudge, nudge, wink, wink’ suggestion as might be thought at first glance. The terms of reference of the review can be found by clicking on the link.

The Call for Evidence questions for the review can be found here (click link) , so you can prepare your answers off-line, then use that draft to answer the questionnaire, which can be found here (another clicky linky thing) .

There’s nothing difficult. Just respond to the bits you want to, and ignore the remainder.

The closing date for submissions is 18 December 2018. You’ve seen the plans the BA have for the expansion of their executive area and the weakening of the status of the navigation.

So often I read about how members would like the government to do ‘something’. This is an opportunity to get your points across to them, an opportunity that won’t be repeated any time soon.

With regard to schools I find it regrettable that in the Authority's quest for NP status children are being mislead perhaps even being lied to.

It seems to me that the time has come to inform both national and local education officers of the facts rather than the whimsy that pervades Yare House.

Problem is that education authorities will simply refer a complaint direct to Dr Packman who will probably then smooth talk his way past any complaint but misleading children in order to further personal ambition is not on. Education is not marketing.

Facts are facts and we have had all the arguments and debates but facts remain facts. Time for a well worded hard hitting fact filled e-mail.
