Many canal businesses, including ours, are struggling during the current crisis. Whilst the Government have put various measures in place to help the leisure and hospitality industry , we do not currently qualify due to our roving nature. This letter to Government, sent jointly by the British Marine Federation and Canal & River Trust, details the special problems that small businesses running on Britain’s canals and rivers are facing.
We have written a letter to our local MP to add our own voice to the call for help for waterways businesses. If you would like to do the same, here are the easiest ways to contact your own MP.
The Write To Them website makes it easy to send an email to your MP. Just enter your postcode and follow the on screen instructions.
If you would rather use pen and paper, use the parliamentary website to find who your MP is and then write to them at the following address:
House of Commons
If you do write, please use your own words as Members of Parliament are justifably wary of form letters.
Many thanks for your support.
