Winter Warmer 2016

National Bargee Travellers Association London (NBTA L) is hosting a warm winter meal with a selection of freshly cooked food and film showing of ‘OFF the CUT’ followed by a discussion. Off the Cut film provides unique insight into a community of boaters living on the Kennet and Avon canal. The film follows a family on their pedal powered boat as they embark on a journey in which their way of life, and that of the whole community, comes under threat. At the event there will be someone from the making of the film to talk about issues in the film.

off-the-cut

All boaters are welcome to come and cook with us, as well as bring their own dishes. We will start cooking at 5pm. This will be a great event for itinerant boaters to eat together, socialise and openly talk about defending our homes in a warm and friendly environment.

Thursday 1 December at 7pm at London Action Resource Centre 62 Fieldgate St, London E1 1ES

The venus is off a road on Whitechapel Road, between Aldgate East tube and Whitechapel tube.

London Survey- For boaters by boaters

This survey differs from CRT’s survey as we wish to see what improvements can be made on the waterways, specifically for boaters without a home mooring. This survey may be completed by anyone who is using, has used or is intending to use the following waterways for navigation: Limehouse Cut, Hertford Union Canal, Lee Navigation, River Stort; Regent’s
Canal and Grand Union Paddington Arm; Grand Union up to Rickmansworth, Slough Arm.
The results will be used to campaign for improvement of London boat dwellers’ needs.
A big thanks to all those who take the time to complete our survey
thank-you
