When it comes to voting for the Boaters representatives on the new body that will replace British Waterways, remember the name Andy Tidy.
Andy is standing for election as a boaters representative on the new Canal and Rivers Trust and many in the blogging community will be aware of Andy through his detailed and informative blog, Captain Ahab's Watery Tales. Of course Andy will not be standing as Capt. Ahab, his pseudonym, so it's either Andy Tidy or Andrew Tidy when it comes to voting.
One other little thought...let's not be apathetic when it comes to vote. If we want boaters views to influence what happens with this wonderful network we need to ensure that we have boaters in place on the committees etc. SO VOTE.
