Liveaboard boaters are being encouraged to complete an NHS survey in order to alert GPs, hospitals and clinics to the barriers that we face gaining access to the health services all citizens are entitled to.
The next meeting of the K&A Boaters’ Action Group will be on Monday 11th February 2019 at 7.30pm at the Barge Inn (in the restaurant), Seend Cleeve, SN12 6QB, between locks 18 and 19. All are welcome.
Come to the meeting if you want to raise matters that you think boaters should be taking action about, or if you need any information about CRT enforcement against boaters without home moorings or if you need advice about CRT enforcement letters, texts or emails.
As a Christmas treat we bring you footage of the Kennet and Avon Canal from the air, filmed by Matthew Williams. Part 1 shows the canal from Caen Hill to Honey Street. Part 2 follows the canal to Pewsey. Happy Christmas.
