New Group Formed

The Countryside Recreational Access Group
CRAG has been formed by a group of enthusiasts who regularly use motor
vehicles in the countryside and who have become disillusioned with the
approach of organisations in resolving current issues. CRAGs members
believe that in order to protect our pastime in the current rapidly
changing environment an alternative approach to that of the existing
organisations will be required.
The cornerstone of the groups objectives will be to develop closer
working relationships and partnerships with Rights of Way, Highways and
National Park Authorities. Whilst the group will not shy away from
supporting legal actions where appropriate, the consensus is that these
should be undertaken only as a last resort.
The focus of the groups' activities will be to work closely with the
relevant authorities to maintain, repair and clear routes and also to
encourage them to take advantage of volunteer labour in order to get the
best value from their budgets. This is aimed at generating positive PR
and a change the in attitude towards motorised users in general by local
authorities and the public.
CRAG will be seeking to appoint regional and area team leaders to
co-ordinate activities on the ground and develop a rapport with the
relevant authorities to organise volunteer projects etc.
Fundamental to the Group's activities will be family orientated fun
revolving around ROW use such as treasure hunts, BBQs camping etc.
If you've tried the rest and not found what you're looking for we invite
you to find out more about CRAG by dropping us a line at

construction and should be up and running by the end of this month -
Watch this space!
Membership for the first year is ?25. For further information, please

The Group intends to work alongside existing organisations such as LARA,
TRF and GLASS to represent the interests of motorised Rights of Way
users at a local and national level.

Hi Peter,
It seems like the ideas from the Difflock forum have been germinating.
Are you planning or trying to get involved in campaigning against the
NERC bill, or is this already being considered a lost cause?
Also, how do people like LARA, TRF and GLASS feel about you? Are they
supportive?
