Annual Restoration Conference 2019

Yesterday in Wolverhampton, a great gathering of over 100 movers and shakers in canal restoration attended a joint IWA /C&RT conference.  

A number of keynote speakers addressed the delegates in the main conference hall, punctuated with break out group sessions tackling in detail matters relating to fund raising, the HLF, community engagement and much more.  Two of these featured Dave Marshall on the importance of CE and Lois Francis & Molly Beebee on adding value to your HLF grant (Archive Projects).

Our Cotswold Canals received more than just a mention.  A number of us and our project partners were in attendance.   With a wealth of knowledge and experience on hand, it was a most rewarding day.
