A website has been launched with the purpose of raising public awareness with regard to the proposed Environment Agency plans for the Thames lock and weir keepers.
Recent articles appearing in both the national and local press have generated much interest and concern.
We are writing to ask all Chronicle readers to go to www.saveourservice.org and learn what impact these plans will have on all river users and Thames-side communities, as well as the lock-keepers and their families.
Through this site we are urging everyone to join our Parliamentary petition to stop these plans from becoming a reality.
Thank you to all the readers who have already taken the time to look at our website and join the petition.
