Yesterday (16th May 2017) CRT seized a boat from Bishops Cannings and craned it out at the Black Horse in Devizes. The fibreglass cruiser, appeared to be unoccupied when six bailiffs started push-towing it with a dark green dory at around 10am to the Black Horse, where an A. B. Tuckey’s crane and flatbed truck were waiting.

Don’t lose your vote in the election! Voter registration forms for people without a fixed address are available from The Wharf Tea Rooms, Devizes Wharf, Couch Lane, Devizes SN10 1EB. The tea rooms are open every day from 10am to 4pm. Liveaboard boaters are also distributing them along the canal to neighbouring boats. You need to register by 22nd May to vote in the 2017 General Election.
The next meeting of the K&A boaters action group will be on Monday 8th May 2017 at 7.30pm at the Lamb Inn, 20 St.John’s Street, Devizes SN10 1BT. We will have voter registration forms for people without a fixed address for boaters to either complete on the spot, take away, or distribute to other boaters. If you have the time to deliver some forms to the boats around you, please come to the meeting!
Liveaboard boaters and their supporters are invited to join a protest at Caen Hill, opposite CRT’s office in Devizes at 2.00pm on Saturday 6th August 2016 to express our opposition to CRT’s punitive and unlawful enforcement policy against boaters without home moorings. This policy has seen so many liveaboard boaters on the K&A having their licences restricted to 6 months, threatened with losing their homes, being pressured to give up their homes, and boat children’s education and welfare suffering due to the long distances they are being forced to travel to school.
Following the recent fatal boat fire on the K&A, the Fire Service will be giving a series of Boat Fire Safety talks in different places along the canal in the Bath and the Wiltshire areas in the next few weeks. Please come along and make sure your boat is as fire safe as possible. The next talk will be in the Black Horse, Bath Rd, Devizes SN10 2AU on Monday 25th January at 7.30pm. There will be free smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms.
