I don't think Ferry Lane Primary School would agree that the landing at Tottenham Hale is "of negligible benefit to the community". Please take the time to view the following link and make sure you read the comments from the children at the bottom http://leadership.fe...water-chariots/ This trip and the many others we have planned with local schools would not be possible without the new waterbus stop. these trips are not paid for by grants,donations or lottery money they are paid for by Water Chariots.
Still think it was a waste of money? I will let you tell the children of Ferry Lane School that the trip planned for later this year around the Olympic Park will be canceled.
I can understand you are annoyed with what you see as negative publicity, but as Cosmic says we are annoyed too, but not with you. Ok maybe a teeny bit annoyed at the original £45 ticket price.
When you picked the school kids up from Ferry Lane you used the towpath side, I know because I was walking past with my dog at the time.
This dispute is not about you
, it is about what we see as misappropriation of public money for bankside work that we feel was not necessary, was meant for other local boating projects, was done without consultation or planning and is obstructing a lock mooring.
Infact it was so unneccesary, you didn't need the landing stage when you took the kids out. It hadn't been built.
This picture from your link shows it clearly. My link
Not my idea, probably not your idea. Would love to know whose idea it was and how much was spent on it.
I'm gonna shut up now, I'm sounding like a broken record over this and whinging on a bulletin board isn't going to get me anywhere is it?
