With the river acting as the spine that connects all communities and people, the river plays a big part in day-to-day life.

A boat license and boat are a pre-requisite if you do not live in a road access community, otherwise you are reliant on water taxi’s  or the good will of your neighbours. Other considerations are access to essential services if you need regular treatment or need a doctor for example.

Many are also able to work from home, for the majority of the time since COVID.
