Environmentally-friendly fun for families on Norfolk Broads
Environmentally-friendly initiatives and family fun came to the Norfolk Broads today when the annual Broads Green Boat Show returned to Salhouse Broad.
Norfolk Broads Direct's diesel electric hybrid cruiser, Fair Princess, which has achieved the Green Tourism Business Scheme's (GTBS) new Green Boat Mark, was one of the star attractions on show.
There was also the opportunity to get out on the water in canoes and rowing, pedal, electric and sailing boats at the event, organised by Salhouse Broad and Broadland Cycle Hire with support from The Broads Authority.
Children's entertainment was also provided by the Nutmeg Puppet show, a BeWILDerwood treasure trail and a Broads Authority stall where children could design and build their own 'green boats' from recycled materials and race them.
Peter Howe, one of the members of the show's organising committee, said: 'We had a very successful day, we haven't seen the numbers yet but I would estimate that we had well over 500 people.

'We had a good range of exhibitors from those concerned with renewable energies and systems for boats.
'The weather was ideal, nice and warm, and Salhouse Broad is so picturesque with the beach and the broad, so it is perfect for this event.'
