A group of 10 live-aboard boaters cleared around 25 bags of litter from the K&A yesterday (Sunday 11th February). The team picked up rubbish from the towpath, hedges and ditches between Semington and Bradford on Avon Marina. The boaters also removed bulky items such as bicycles and rubble.
There will be a skip at the car park by Hilperton Marsh bridge (165) from this Friday 9th to Monday 12th February 2018. It is for bulky rubbish from boats on the towpath and moored at Hilperton Marsh Farm, and it will also be used to dispose of rubbish cleared by the Boaters’ Towpath Tidy this Sunday 11th February.
The next meeting of the K&A Boaters’ Action Group will be on Monday 12th February 2018 at 7.30pm at the Somerset Arms, High St, Semington BA14 6JR, a 5 minute walk south from the canal bridge. All are welcome. The meeting aims to plan what action to take if CRT announces an increase in licence fees for boats without a home mooring.
Liveaboard boaters are organising a towpath tidy between Semington and Hilperton on Sunday 11th February 2018. Everyone is welcome. Please join us at the canal bridge at Semington (160) at 11.30 am for an 11.45 am start. We aim to litterpick between Seend Park swing bridge (155) and Hilperton Marina. This is around a 3.5 mile stretch so we will need lots of people!
This questionnaire is being carried out by liveaboard boaters as part of the Equality Impact Assessment of the Local Mooring Strategy proposals for the western Kennet and Avon canal (Bath to Devizes). The purpose of this questionnaire is to find out what impact the proposed mooring restrictions will have on liveaboard boaters – most of whom don’t have moorings.
