I attended the User Forum for North Wales and Boarders in April. The well attended afternoon meeting was held in the club house of the Nantwich Town FC, about 300 yds from the SU towpath. CRT were also well represented with Manager, engineers, and customer service and volunteer senior staff.
I attended the Spring North East Local Waterway Forum (User Group that was) on 7th April at a new venue. In the introduction, the local manager – Jon Horsfall- announced that following the survey carried out by Roger Hanbury towards the end of last year, and some complaints about the recent time overruns it has been decided that in future these meetings will change format and hopefully will become more relevant to users/customers.
This is a summary report on the boater meeting(s) held at Anderton Lift on 1st April 2014.
There were two meetings back to back. The writer attend the second, understood to be the less well attended. There was never the less a good balance of well informed boaters present, and many of the usual boater issues came up.
The was held on Thursday 13.3.2014 evening at the CRT offices, Fearns Wharf, Leeds. I attended on behalf of NABO together with around 60 other boaters and the meeting followed the usual pattern with the CRT NE Waterway Manager – Jon Horsfall – as host.
