    "With 32 now having voted, there appears to be a very clear majority indicating that they are unhappy"

    ....how many of the 32 have actually expressed their dissatisfaction with the management of the Thames by actually joining or even going along to any of the meetings held by local boating organisations, or contacting directly the management team.
    It will take time and effort to change things .
    Sit back and your reward will equal exactly what you have put in ?

    Received to day from Navconsultation <Navconsultation@environment-agency.gov.uk>

    Dear Customer,

    In early 2018 you responded to our consultation on the Strategic Review of Navigation Charges. Thank you for responding, we value being able to gather views of our customers.

    In your response you expressed interest in being involved in workshops to help us shape our proposals for the future of our boat Registration Service. We’re currently developing these proposals, and if approved any changes will be implemented from 2021.

    Please could you let us know by Wednesday 25 September, by replying to this email, if you’re still interested in participating in early engagement around these proposals? If your response is ‘yes’, please also confirm which Environment Agency waterway is of interest to you (Upper Medway, Non-tidal River Thames or Anglian Waterways).

    If we don’t hear from you by then we’ll assume that you don’t wish to be involved in our early engagement.

    Once our proposals are finalised we’ll seek approval to conduct a further full public consultation. At this stage we’ll once again write to all our boat registration customers to invite your responses.

    Many Thanks

    The Navigation Team
    The Zen Master said "we'll see"

    Seems to me they don't really know what they should be doing.
    I have written several times and been fobbed off with no, or very little half hearted, apparent action on any issues

    I made a complaint to Barry Russell but it came back with such of lies/half truths I didn't pursue. Contacted by an EA person called Dan earlier this year about getting the lock instructions wording sorted, but that died off & he never asked me to comment/provide input in the end. I think we all regard the workers on the ground/volunteers are great, it's the management who are not up to it! I say put Roger (volunteer, Caversham for many years now) in charge, he has a far better understanding than any of the management.

    Should the EA be helping to pay for this?

    Actually, scrub that.
    Shouldn't the EA just pay for this?

    Really nice to see this.
    and since the much derided plastic bag ban a notable reduction in bags hanging in bushes and trees.....now for a ban on those poxy single use water bottles and Red Bull cans ?


    Bill for "champers" bottles should be heading in the direction of the Henley regatta organisers ...?

    Fat chance of that... Usually reliable inside sources indicate that HRR are unwilling to pay for anything.

    Bit harsh that, they may not have recovered from the last recession and perhaps a bit short of cash ?
