Chiltern Branch Supports the Westminster Campaign
Fund Britain’s Waterways
On a very soggy afternoon, we arrived at Westminster Bridge – where were the campaigners? Oh! About eight stood huddled under umbrellas awaiting the boats. At this point it was mentioned that on the narrow boats making their way upstream it would not be a too comfortable journey either.
We donned our Chiltern high viz and joined the group, steadily this increased as participants from IWA groups, Royal Yachting Association, National Association of Boat Owner, Canal & River Trust volunteers, and local authorities arrived.
At about 2 pm, the boats could be seen approaching under the bridges. A police boat had meanwhile been hovering around the parliament balcony. The campaign cruise obviously needed surveillance.
