I will not name it but one Pub realising there will be huge expenditure needed in the not to far distant future for reconstruction of their quay so started to charge a non-refundable £10 overnight charge in 2021, however they now take advance bookings and it seems to have worked out well for all

Karen, re Philosophic's point about leaving the mooring after eating.A lot of boats moor up during the day to have lunch so it would not be dark when it was time to leave so that option would be there. Not all of the customers are hire boats , so that option would be there also. I would like to think that at the time it was dark most folk on the river would be moored up and hopefully would not be needing those at the New Inn.

Thanks

Of course if you are paying to moor there's nothing stopping you from walking past the pub and eating and drinking elsewhere, something that I despise on a normal free pub mooring and a reason I don't object to a redeemable fee either, but a straight non redeemable fee leaves you under no obligation to use the pub as you've paid for the mooring.

Bella as a mod I read all the posts I can, in between doing my job, or my daily life. We all do. We also communicate with each other, approve new members, posts etc.

If I've seen something or things ( plural) that need a general response about how the forum runs then I might quickly address that without going back through a current thread to ascertain precisely who said what. When I'm browsing on an evening I may habevthe time. My choice really.  I'm about to attend an online meeting so  i'll be signing out shortly.  

I guess if you were the person who said the things I was referring to you'll know that ! And so I'm not sure why you'd be confused.  I recall I was picking up on one or two different points , actually.  Im not exactly sure why it matters but as my mum used to say if the cap fits, wear it?

I'm aware there have been another couple of other posts which I'd like to respond to as a member with my contribution,  but I've had to use my time up with this message.  I'll be back later.

Karen, I am sorry that you have responded in this way, I asked you in a polite way wanting to know if I was in trouble.
There was no animosity towards you, the mods or anybody else, with this topic being busy the cap could fit a number of people.
As you stated you made notes a while ago so we are back to square one, who were they aimed at.
I understand that you are a busy person, have a good meeting.
Thanks

Edited for spelling mistake, slap wrist.

I've been questioned on my comment about leaving a mooring after eating/drinking. You may recall that comment was in response to a point that if a car park is free then so should a mooring be.
The logic behind my comment was that unless the car park is used in exactly the same way as the mooring (for whatever reason) then it is not a true "apples for apples" comparison.

Hi Bella, busy few days so just picking up on things.

As you know we do have a private message system but if you choose not to use it it does make things a little more difficult,  and public.

I do need to clarify one thing, in relation to my comment re my mums old saying "if the cap fits wear it"  in that there should've been a playful emoticon at the end of that comment.  What you got however was a question mark because that's what happens when using an iPhone and clicking on the smiley faces available there instead of clicking on the forum specific options. Oops.  Sorry. I should've known because I've done this before.

To pick up on some other comments in response to points I made.  Yes I do understand the difference between night and day and my comments about boats leaving after dark were specific to evening customers and hire boats. I was not suggesting it applied to all customers at any time,  and private boats.

Have to also totally agree with another comment made that if it's a straightforward charge for the Moorings then it's inevitable that people will pay for the mooring and then do what they want with their evening i.e. not give any custom to the New Inn.  Which does bring another of my mum's favourite sayings to mind :  they'd be "cutting off their nose to spite their face"  Playful Wink  

Each pub Moorings situation is different and there is the problem that Horning village is a popular spot to visit but offers few Moorings,  so I do think it's likely that some would pay the charge to moor up,  not use the pub at all and expect to be in position for 24 hours,  whereas in the past people would stop for lunch and move off mid afternoon giving the opportunity for those who had booked a table to turn up at 4,5 or 6 pm, be sure of the mooring availability having booked a table,  spend their money in the pub and then depart after breakfast the following day.

I don't normally book moorings this early, but as she was off yesterday, I got my wife to book a couple of moorings for early July where I know we need to be.
Horning Sunday night and Reedham Friday night

So, when I came home she told me she'd booked the moorings however The New Inn charged her £15 for the the mooring (card payment taken) and booked us a table with the dog

Whilst I'd rather it be free, £15 to guarantee getting moored in Horning, when there are very few options is ok to me

I don't know if they are charging for mooring out of season

I know there are many that will be appalled and wont use the place but with only 8 moorings I reckon they'll be full during the summer, for me not to pay £15 and risk not getting moored would be 'cutting my nose off to spite my face' to quote someone's mother!
