The Upper Thames Protection Society
The mission statement of the Upper Thames Protection Society: "To preserve for the benefit of the public the natural state of the river Thames upstream from Inglesham, and its beauty, aesthetic appeal and wild life".
The Upper Thames Protection Society have written a letter to one of the Cricklade Town councillors outlining their concerns over canal restoration. Do take a look at that if you are interested.

Community Events and Publicity
UTPS have recently attended certain events within the community to publicise our Society. We thank Wayland Estates for providing a grant towards the cost of publication of additional copies of The Stripling, which has allowed UTPS to distribute our newsletter at these events. Through these activities we hope to attract new members to the Society.
National Trails - The Thames Path
The official launch of the new National Trails website has taken place. This shows the Thames Path in detail, as well as nearby attractions and facilities.
Interactive features mean that local businesses can upload details of the services they provide to people visiting the area. Accordingly, those in and around Cricklade could take advantage of this new facility. Further details are available on the website: www.nationaltrail.co.uk
River Thames Society
The River Thames Society, now 52 years old, has always been committed to protecting the Thames for its whole length, from source to sea. The river is now cleaner than it has been for more than 200 years, but human development continues to apply pressure on the wildlife habitats and spaces where people can enjoy the peace of the river scenes.
