So who uses the River Medway ? You could be forgiven for thinking that Anglers are the most frequent users closely followed by boaters of one kind or another. Both have to pay for the privilege of using the Medway. Canoeists, Scullers, Rowers, we even have divers. Not to mention bird watchers, walking groups, art groups, photographers, all enjoy the diversity of the navigation. Its scenery is admired by thousands of tourists, just look at Teston Lock and Yalding on a sunny summer day.
In addition to the Clubs and Businesses we have an ever growing number of individual members who support us. People who already appreciate the benefits of having an organisation such as the M.R.U.A to help keep an ever watchful eye on the river and see that things that need to be done get done!
The association works closely with the Environment Agency and Medway Valley Countryside Partnership and meet regularly to discuss issues relating to the well being of the water and surrounding areas.
We also have a patron in the form of Helen Grant MP who takes a keen interest in events on and around a waterway that she personally enjoys being near.
We would still like representation of ramblers and other groups not listed, please contact us if your organisation is not represented.
