Shackerstone Festival ecology issues

Further to yesterday's post CRT have issued a press release which seems to me to represent some sensible compromise:

Not often I praise CRT but if what is said in the release is acheived then that seems like a fair balance to me and one that takes account of boaters and navigation.

... but which way will the wind blow?

I think we are at a critical time for the future of boating on CRT canals and rivers. I said before that I hope that the recent departure of the much reviled Sally Ash and the other changes in the boating management team represents an opportunity for the winds of change to blow. But of course as ever there is no consensus about what form or direction any change should take.

'Friendly' London Cyclists

Poor old CRT - they are in a mess. It was with some amusement that I reflected on NBW's recent article as I watched a CART Chugger on the towpath opposite my mooring last night, trying to stop commuting cyclists to persuade them to' sign up'. The poor geezer was nearly flattened more than a couple of times, and sworn at in no uncertain terms at least once as said cyclist whizzed off into the distance.

CRT still price fixing moorings

Two vacancies advertised at Engineers Wharf again at the moment. Have CRT reduced the reserve price to try to get them let after all these years vacant ? Of course not!

Can't Really Trust'em!
