Tow­path Task­force could tackle re­pairs back­log

Canal Boat - - Letters -

IN RE­SPONSE to Peter Owen’s let­ter in the April is­sue, I’m afraid that you an­swered your own ques­tion. Yes it is too much to ex­pect CRT to sur­face all cross-coun­try tow­paths.

You are in the mi­nor­ity be­ing a Friend and hav­ing in­sur­ance but re­al­is­ti­cally you know that this will not hap­pen. The pres­sures on CRT are many and var­ied, and as a boater there are is­sues that I wish could be ad­dressed but have to ac­cept that they prob­a­bly won’t be.

Have you thought of join­ing or start­ing a Tow­path Task­force that could ad­dress the ar­eas you have a prob­lem with as other ar­eas have?

The more peo­ple who get in­volved prac­ti­cally, the more funds CRT would have avail­able to tackle the back­log that they will no doubt al­ways have, as that is the nature of main­tain­ing what is an out­door mu­seum for all.
