A wonderful opportunity to do some boating in a different part of the country and get involved in a very worthwhile project.
We need to find 3 experienced steerers, no certificates needed, for a project that involves taking a group of young people from Birmingham to Manchester for a dance performance on hire boats. This is the first two weeks of July.
On Saturday 16th April there will be a demonstration to demand that CRT:
*stops evicting or threatening to evict boat dwellers without permanent moorings based on their travel pattern, because of an arbitrary and unlawful minimum distance ‘rule’ that has been imposed since last May
*stops imposing 24 hour mooring time limits (the law entitles us to stay 14 days in any one place)
*stops any plans for the sale of our waterways,
and instead takes positive action to:
*maintain the banks and towpaths of the waterways
*install more mooring rings where these are needed and
