I have been
approached by a number of club members and marina berth holders asking what the
club can do to influence decisions Canal & River Trust (CRT) make when it
comes to the management of the River Trent and its facilities.
arranged a meeting with the Canal & River Trust East Midlands Management
Team to discuss the management of the River Trent and pass on concerns from our
members and the marina berth holders regarding facilities and the general
deterioration of the River Trent.
We as a club
have an opportunity to build a relationship with Canal & River Trust, voice
our concerns and share ideas of how the River Trent can be improved to enable
all waterway users to enjoy the river. To offer guidance and feedback from
actual boaters who regularly utilise the river and its facilities.
I invite you
to put pen to paper and share your thoughts with me, provide examples and
constructive feedback that I can pass on to the CRT East Midlands Management
email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org, alternatively speak to any
member of the flag officers.
date is Monday 8th August 2021
I will also
be asking for regular contact from CRT regarding updates on what progress has
been made based on your feedback.
