River Access in Kent

In Kent, we're not free to paddle many of our rivers, and it's getting worse.  Angling Clubs and others have prevented us from paddling on the West Rother, the Upper Medway, and other stretches in recent years.  On November 28th, British Canoeing are launching the "Clear Access, Clear Charter" campaign to open up rivers all over the country to paddlers, perhaps similar to the CRoW act in 2000 that opened up most land to walkers.

Please contact your MP to support this.  Use the simple form at https://www.writetothem.com/ to email them now, but please write to them also.  Below are a couple of sample letters which you could use - one each for Tracey Crouch MP and Helen Grant MP, one of whom is likely to be your local MP, and a generic one you can change if you have a different MP.

These campaigns really make a difference - anglers and other interested parties are vocal and active at Westminster, and a couple of minutes printing this off, or sending a copy by email at https://www.writetothem.com/, will make a big difference to this important right.
