Fund Britain’s Waterways Campaign Cruise

FUND BRITAIN’S WATERWAYS,

BIRMINGHAM CAMPAIGN CRUISE. 12/13 AUGUST 2023

A steering group representing IWA, NABO, AWCC, RYA BM and RBOA is progressing this

campaign and in support of it is organising a campaign cruise to Birmingham on the weekend of 12/13 August.  A formal notice is being delayed awaiting the Defra announcement on the CRT grant settlement, but in the meanwhile we want to give boaters early notification to help them plan their cruising.

The date has been agreed to enable boaters to attend on their way to the IWA Festival of Water at Pelsall two weeks later. Plans have to be finalised but in brief boats will gather on the Saturday at various locations around Birmingham city centre and progress early on Sunday to gather at the Mailbox.  There will be no entry charge for boats but an application form must be completed.

Please register your interest now to fbw.birmingham@waterways.org.uk and we will keep you informed and forward an entry form in due course.

Help us to get the message across to government that increased funding for Britain’s waterways to avert their decline really matters to us.  Apologies if you receive this notice more than once but we want to ensure a good coverage promptly.
