Steve & Christine celebrate their 50th year holiday on the Norfolk Broads

Barnes Brinkcraft customers Steve & Christine have embarked on their 50th holiday on the Norfolk Broads with a trip onboard one of their favourite cruisers ‘Brinks Omega‘.

As a thank you to the couple for their years of continued loyalty, the Directors have gifted them this year’s holiday with a presentation made on their arrival on Tuesday.

Director, Daniel Thwaites said “we are so pleased that Steve & Christine have chosen to return to us each year for their holiday. They know which boats they like, and will often holiday on the same boat for up to 10 years.  They really are customers turned friends, and we look forward to seeing them return to the yard every summer.’

Steve from Essex, first started holidaying on the Norfolk Broads as a teenager after a relative moved to Lammas, near Buxton.  His first trip to the area was with a friend in a wooden boat which they rented from a boatyard in Horning. Since then he has continued to return year on year, firstly with friends and then with his wife Christine who has been holidaying on the Broads almost as long, since 1974.

Christine & Steve had their honeymoon on the Broads and then continued to take holidays after having their son, enjoying many happy holidays throughout his  childhood and beyond.

Have you had a long love affair with the Norfolk Broads? or have you been coming to Norfolk for as long as Steve or Christine, or even longer?  Did you get engaged or even married on the Broads?
