Calling All Boaters

Spotted in the November issue of BW's Boaters update:

"BW launched a public consultation on 8 October about licence fee increases over the next three years. To have your say, download a copy and send us your comments by Monday 7 January 2008. Chief executive Robin Evans and marketing & customer service director Simon Salem, have set aside four dates for hour-long, face to face discussions with waterway users on the subject: The dates and locations are:

Tuesday 4 Dec in Watford, 2pm, 3pm and 4pm
Thursday 13 Dec in Leeds, 5pm, 6pm or 7pm
Friday 14 Dec in Gloucester, 2pm. 3pm and 4pm
Sunday 16 Dec in Hatton (Warwickshire), 10am, 11am and 12 noon

BW licence holders and interested members of the public are invited."

We feel it is an important opportunity to make BW aware of Boaters opinions and feelings and the more that attend and/or respond the bigger the point we can make. An big response gets a big message across and it cannot be said later that no one objected to the increases.

To book a place at one of the consultations look here
If by any chance they say they cannot take any more bookings let's turn up in any case!

If you are unable to attend please do respond in writing by downloading a response form

Once again we need to be proactive, not inactive! Please do spread the word to all you know who would be interested , even if they are not boaters but they do understand the issues boaters face.
