The Canal & River Trust’s Chief Executive, Richard Parry, will be hosting a series of meetings for waterways users across the country throughout 2014. The meetings will offer a chance for people to informally address their view on local and national issues.

The first meetings will take place on: Thursday 23 January, 6pm – Birmingham, Saturday 8 February, 3PM – Nottingham (Pictured) and Wednesday 26 February, 6pm – Banbury. More information is available on the Canal & River Trust website.

Richard will host these open meetings regularly, seeking to hold them in each waterway over the year. Boaters with nearby moorings and continuous cruisers who have been sighted nearby will be contacted with email invitations. Anyone else who is interested is welcome to attend and the meeting details will be put up on the Canal & River Trust website.

Richard Parry, chief executive at Canal & River Trust, said: “As I announced in November, I want to make sure we listen carefully to views from the cut and openly share our ideas and plans for the future so that we get input from those whose commitment to our waterways is greatest to make sure our plans align with what our customers want. These informal open meetings are another opportunity for boaters and other users to speak directly to the Trust and I hope they encourage people to share their views and ideas.”
