On sale now! A 2018 calendar brought to you by the liveaboard boaters of the K&A.
During the last week of November 2017, liveaboard boaters carried out improvements to the towpath in Horton where it is uneven and becomes very slippery and unsafe in winter. Seven people helped to barrow and shovel scalpings and gravel onto the towpath near Horton Bridge and on the approach to Horton Chain Bridge.

Outreach boat at Dundas, 7th November: paper copies of CRT licence consultation and spoken word/ poetry workshop available!November 2nd, 2017
The Boaters’ Cafe Club outreach boat will be at Dundas basin next Tuesday 7th November 2017 from 12 noon to 4pm. The main attraction is a spoken word and poetry workshop with Dru Marland. The workshop is aimed at boaters who would like support with wellbeing and mindfulness. The loose theme of the workshop will be “outsiders”.
Boaters may have received an email or a letter from CRT with a link for the consultation questionnaire for CRT’s review of boat licensing.
This consultation contains two proposals to increase the cost of a boat licence without a home mooring. There is no legal justification for this. Increasing the licence fee for boaters without a home mooring will drive some of our community off the canal and into homelessness.
