The Upper Tideway branch has a limited social programme of talks, walks and picnics, some together with other local groups.

We have a presence at various annual events, such as Tidefest, the Great River Race and Richmond Fair, and currently host the RTS cutter alongside a vintage craft just below Richmond bridge. With other local groups, we engage with the Thames Landscape Strategy, supporting and enhancing on our special local Arcadia.

We have an interest in planning matters, trying to preserve what is best about the river, and are ever watchful for applications, including any new non-mobile houseboats, that appear to encroach on precious river space.

The river authority for us is the Port of London Authority We responded last year to their proposals for changing the legislation under which they operate, but have yet to hear how they propose to proceed.

We are a small branch in terms of the length of the river we cover, but hope we punch above our weight, for example in relation to policy matters.

Current Activities (February 2022)
We have our branch AGM this month, at the splendid Eel Pie Island museum. This could be a good chance to catch up with river-friends, with time to see the museum again too.
