The River Avon Users Consultative Committee (RAUCC) is to re-launch this month with an amended membership policy which the RUACC says is to ensure that meetings remain manageable and represent a balance of interests. Membership will be restricted to one representative per group or organisation.

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.
