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. Still, in the meanwhile, we want to give boaters early notification to help them plan their cruising. 

The date has been agreed upon 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 boats will gather on Saturday at various locations around Birmingham city centre and progress early on Sunday to gather at the Mailbox.  There will be no boat entry charge, but an application form must be completed.
