Kennet and Avon Canal Boaters Society

A friendly and informal group primarily targeted at boaters on the Kennet and Avon.

We welcome anyone interested in discussing our lovely canal, feel free to stop by for information and advice regarding navigation, mooring, pubs, etc if visiting the area or thinking about moving onto a boat.

We are also happy for people to post volunteering opportunities on and around the canal; advice for protecting the canal and surrounding environment; and other information which boaters in the area might find interesting.

The group is set as "closed" to avoid SPAM, if you put in a membership request we just make a quick check that your profile looks human (ie: not 3 days old with a stock photo).

Be aware that since we do allow anyone to join (and it would be almost impossible to enforce anything else) you should remember that anyone may be reading (this may include employees of the Canal and River Trust and other organisations).

The only rule is: be friendly and polite to others, we do on occasion have to remove those who violate this rule.

We also prefer that members avoid posting advertisements or petitions that do not relate to canals.
