Broads boating group changes name

A new Broads boat owners' pressure group, which was started only a few weeks ago, has quickly decided to change its name .

The Norfolk & Suffolk Broads Owners Association soon decided that its name was 'a little too close' to another boating organisation. Before the name became too deeply embedded, it decided to rename itself the Broads Toll Payers Association (BTPA) – reflecting that toll paying (boat licensing) issues are the main focus of the group.

Dave Standley, spokesman for the organisation said, “This is an important step for us and one that we had to make early-on to prevent confusion.

“Our membership has grown rapidly but feedback suggested that the old name should be quickly retired."
