The significant preservatives in *rs*nic and chromium were banned in 2006 but I guess supplies were still available for some time after

Perhaps the New Inn would be better off having no moorings to allow there customers a pleasant view of the river instead of slab,s of grp,

As normally happens with a lot of our debates there is always lots of assumptions.

In Seves opening he stated “a mooring fee of £10 to £15 to be confirmed.....” and “will really have to re think or lower to £5 which is fair enough to pay upkeep of moorings”

1. As stated this has not been confirmed.
2. Who has said that the fee was to pay for the upkeep of the moorings?
(Much discussion about the costs of maintaining the moorings)

The New Inn is a business.
“Business is the activity of making ones living or making money by producing or buying and selling products.”

When the New Inn was taken over they knew that they would have two product lines to sell.
1. Drinks.
2. Food.

It would not take long for a Director or Account to see that because of demand in the high season they have another product to sell “The Moorings” and all they are looking at is profit. THAT’S BUSINESS!

Drink sales               £..........
Food sales.              £..........
Mooring fees            £..........
Total.                        £...........
Costs.                     -£...........

PROFIT.                   £xxxxxxxxxxYum yum THAT’S BUSINESS


If you took your Camper Van, tent or caravan to a campsite attached to a pub and stayed overnight would you expect to stay for free?

What’s the difference to tying your boat to a private mooring overnight?

nobody has ever mentioned that the mooring charge was to contribute towards the cost of the upkeep of the quay heading. It was just mentioned that there could be a mooring charge applied in the future.

hedgehog, I think that you should go back to the first post by seve and read it all of the way through.

For your help the last line reads, “Think they will really have to re think or lower to £5 which is fair enough to pay up keep of moorings.”

“pay upkeep of moorings.”

Thanks for your help with that Bella. Apologies , I had not read that as thoroughly as I should have . I hope that “help” from you was genuine and not in anyway meant in any other way . There are certain folk on here who really think they have a right to speak to people on this forum in a rather derogatory manner.

When the pub was run by Ann and Gus was running the moorings/garden, the pub was always busy and they didnt need to charge for moorings, presumably because they were making healthy profits on the excellent food, drink and service.It was always our go to pub,either by boat or car,so cant help feeling the mooring charge is a bit of a rip off,remember that the only thing they insisted on was if you moor then you book a table to eat there, that always seemed fair to me.

kindest regards

"A good point but surely would only be valid if you moved the boat after eating/drinking as you would remove a car from the establishment car park."

If we only stop for lunch then we do, but when we along with friends are there till closing time up to 1.00am on occasion and then go in for breakfast the following morning (up to 10 covers) no.

Totally agree with you there Brian.

Philosophic’s point about leaving the mooring after eating,  like you would leave a car park, fails to take account of the fact that hire boats or not permitted to navigate after dark, so that option isn’t there.

I would also like to add a response to an earlier comment  from another member - I don’t believe anyone raising objections here or expressing their opinions about the rights and wrong of the matter were somehow brought up inadequately and don’t appreciate that they should pay for things! Bit below the belt that one.

Someone also mentioned they don’t like the attitude of some people on this forum , and the way they address other members. So just a couple of points:

- Firstly,  as mods we do keep an eye on the content in relation to the terms of service but if anyone has a particular complaint can I suggest they send a personal message to a member of the admin team in case we have missed something.

- Secondly , please be aware this is a discussion forum and we do allow people to express their opinions and challenge other people’s.

Cheers all. May we continue our open & interesting discussions which sometimes bring about change - even in just the opinions of others.

Karen
