Branch AGM, followed by a talk by Jane Harman

The Thames Sailing Barge May was built by John & Herbert Cann of Harwich, Essex and launched in 1891.  After a long working history as a cargo carrier, marine training and hospitality venue, May was taken over by Connie and Gerald Gadd in 2011 and is now being restored by The Bread and Roses CIC team as a community hub run by women for women.  She is currently moored at St Osyth Boatyard, Clacton-on-Sea.  May is now owned by the CIC, with an asset locked guarantee that will secure her future, enabling her to be of continued benefit to the communities that she will visit.

Waterway underfunding

Hundreds of miles of waterways – along with their unique heritage and habitats – are currently starved of funding and rely on constant lobbying by us to safeguard their future.

Sustainable Boating

We want boating on canals and rivers to be more sustainable and – even though the current overall contribution to UK carbon emissions is very small – we want to help reduce emissions on the waterways.

Waterways Heritage at Risk

Britain’s canals and rivers are a unique, living heritage. But that heritage is at risk – from urban development, lack of protection, loss of skills and knowledge and climate change.

You can help Save Waterways Heritage.

Waterway restoration

Restoring the UK’s blue infrastructure – our inherited network of navigable canals and rivers – is good for people and places.
