Pole star: the movie

NEXT time you’re walking the Wherryman’s Way, look out for a smallish, elegant boat called Pole Star. Inside you are likely to find Lorna and Richard Cracknell, a couple who love exploring the Yare from their home mooring at Brundall. So far so normal. But how many of the hundreds who do the same have had a song composed in their honour? Lorna and Richard’s daughter Liz has done just that. Don’t be put off by the mention of Beccles in the title, this is mostly a Yare love affair. Brundall Marina rhymes with “serener” and Reedham rhymes with freedom. WARNING: this song could make you want to sell the house and live on board for ever.
