    Lightbulb Access paddle

    Hi!
    Hyperion prompted me to do this! So here goes............

    I NEED YOUR HELP! WE NEED YOUR HELP!!!

    I want to start a familly paddle for the mid to back end of July on a north west river that has disputed access. (The Dee or Lune have been put forward)
    I would welcome ideas & suggestions for venues & I would like a rough number of paddlers & boats that would be interested.
    The more people the better, the more familly groups the better. I don't want this to be seen by others as an antaganistic or confrontational event.
    BUT it would be good to show the world how rivers can & should be shared & enjoyed!
    If you would like to take part, have a place we would have most impact or simply wish to send a message of support....
    POST on here! (PM me for contact details if you want to do more!)

    Thanks for reading & I hope to hear from some of you soon,
    Happy paddling,
    Mark

    I don't know the area so can't give much advice, but would come along and paddle.
    ​Change is inevitable; progress is optional.

    I couldn't join you, but wish you every success with this venture. Maybe we Southerners could paddle the Avon to coincide?
