    Apologies, my memory lettign me down again. They posted a link in their emails this week which directs to https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/enjoy-the-waterways/safety-on-our-waterways/coronavirus/coronavirus-and-boating-faqs We’ve put up hundreds of posters across the network and have made the poster available online, so boaters can print it off and display it in their windows. Around 1,800 have been downloaded – thank you to all those who have helped. Please help us communicate this information, but under no circumstances should anyone place obstructions on towpaths. You can print off the poster here - thank you for your help.

    There are CRT posters stating 'Do not walk past boats' at all access points as well as on trees/posts near to boats (CRT sent these via email to boaters authorising them to put the up). We went for a walk to one of our local towpath's today on the Oxford (opposite the Pig Place). There was a boat moored up just passed the swing bridge so we stopped short of it. The guy was pottering outside and we struck up a conversation (at a distance). The towpath is quite wide there so I asked him if he minded us passing and he said "of course you can, you're the first people to actually ask", he stepped away and we had considerably more than 2m between us and without anyone coughing! He mentioned there were 3/4 boats further up and we said we'd turn around before we get to them. He went on to say that the people form those boats wouldn't mind as they were down chatting to him earlier. What's happened to common sense to be applied with the rules?
  3. we went in said butchers yesterday and bought a pointy cabbage, a leek and some taramasalata. Am pesce so no need to take a loan out to buy meat there!
  4. How did you find out about the 'click & collect' availability or are you just checking several times a day? We've been using the Co-op in Deddington but restricted of course.

  8. Can't say I've not noticed this with 'Marine 16 Diesel Fuel Complete'.
  9. Busy working but often around when not or when not on the boat!
  10. I don't mix with any boaters of that ilk. They were complaining just by arriving and departing.
  11. err, joke? and just for the record, the one or more who moved immediately after they were built started complaining almost straight away and were very anti-boat, no matter how courteous, quiet and sympathetic boaters were to their new quayside. Just the engine noise and fumes alienated the boaters.
  12. even without the 0's, best boat on the cut!?
