Access to Rivers Petition.
Roger L. Revell has set up a petition at http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/Canoeists/ calling for the Government to pass legislation to give canoeists and all other users of un-powered craft the free right to navigate all rivers and canals in England and Wales (similar to the right already enjoyed by cyclists to use
bridleways, cycle tracks and roads).

http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/Canoeists/

Please have a look at it and consider adding your name as a signatory. The more names it can receive will show the Government once again how important access is to a large part of the population. People want to enjoy their natural heritage for many reasons. In this day and age the restrictive situation in England and Wales is very archaic and needs changing.
Remember that after signing the petition, you will receive an email from the Government website. Your name will not be added to the petition unless you respond to the Government website’s email.
What we are calling for is the type of legislation that is a version of the Scottish Land Reform Act 2003. This Act is applicable to manually powered craft. The Act codifies responsible access to land and water it protects the environment and activities of all canoeists, anglers, other users, and landowners who are all required to adhere to the Scottish Outdoor Access Code. This Act gives rights but also responsibilities and covers all users of the outdoors. The Act has been successfully implemented in Scotland so why not else where.
Many thanks

From the look of the Thread regarding Charging for access to the Lakes in the Lake District, this needs to also include Lakes!!

Signatories have just passed 200.

Still being beaten by the bloke who wants Spandau Ballet's 'Gold' to be the new national anthem.

Surely we can do better! Any chance we could make this a sticky post so that it's right 'in yer face' when you log on.

Ask everyone who supports our case to sign this; colleagues, family, etc.

If we get a lot of signatures, that sends the message to Govt; equally, if we don't get a lot of signatures, it will count against us. This petition is there, now, on the PM's web page - we have to make it count.

784 with me and distributed round club.

Seriously though, we need to get a decent number of signatures on this to get above the dross that is floating about on that site.

Done.. but seriously though, you don't think they might just 'filter out' some of the less than serious ones, maybe?? Just a thought...

No, I don't. The one about having gold as the national anthem has been there for 4 months or so. If you look at the ones that have been removed then there are very few and it tends to be repetition or really offensive stuff.

In fact I don't think that that they consider stuff on that site at all, but hey ho, I've put my signature on incase I'm wrong. One of the problems of that site is that it is very difficult to separate the dross out and if you aren't following a link to something specific the you wouldn't see it. Can the PM's work experience boy or whoever runs that distinguish (or be bothered to distinguish) what is important, to whom, if what we have to say is really that important then there are better ways of doing it, like direct lobbying by the NGB.

I was more thinking along the lines of when a 'human' at n.10 finally gets round to (or told to) looking at what petitions were on the website...

I'm fairly certain that our very busy PM will not want to sit down at a meeting looking through a list of petitions with 'spandau ballet for national anthem' or 'PM does a triple somersault' still in.

Although, given I'm currently reading the Yes Prime Minister Diaries I'm not prepared to place money on that.
