£3,000 launch point for boats

A LAUNCH point for canoes and dinghies could be built in Goring.

The parish council is considering setting up a landing stage on the banks of the Thames off Ferry Lane.

It would be near the river footpath on open land owned by the council.

Some people already launch from the site without permission so the council has to regularly repair the bank.

At present the nearest authorised stages are in South Stoke and Pangbourne or Benson for larger craft.
