Safety and Security Sticky

Keeping ourselves safe and our homes secure is an issue for boaters, as for people in all walks of life. However, there are certain things that boaters can do as a community to minimise the risk of crime and support each other when a crime does take place.

REMEMBER: If you are a victim of crime, try to warn other boaters in the local area. Above all, talk to your neighbours!

ALWAYS tell the police if you are the victim of crime. The more that crime is reported, the more resources will be put into the prevention of crime on the canals and rivers.

Gas safety and Coulrophobia* – by Ron Gooding

It seems so simple working with gas. A little bit of pipe, some orange hose with numbers on it and a few clips. Also my mate’s dad is a plumber and said he can help. I mean it isn’t rocket science is it?
