As members of the local community, we are fundraising to recover and remove the sunken boats littering the River Avon in Bath.

During the floods of early January 2024, my boat was taken by the floodwaters and sank after the ropes snapped in the early morning of January the 5th. 

After some encouragement and so many kind offers for help, I have decided to create a community project aimed at not only retrieving my boat, but retrieving as many more of boats causing concern for wildlife in this formerly beautiful stretch of water.

Now that the water levels have reached safe summer levels, the money raised will help fund the tools, equipment, and services of community members who have kindly offered their salvaging expertise, as well as hopefully buying a coffee for everyone who has offered their time to help. 

Once lifted, if the owners cannot be found, we will take suggestions from the local community to decide what to do with them.
