Launch meeting

Saturday 22nd September.

The official launch of our Trust.
In spite of the terrible weather conditions 50 to 60 people braved the torrential rain to attend our inuagural meeting.  Jan Flanagan opened the proceedings and her introduction was followed by a short film explaining the origins of the IWA and the canal restoration movement.
This was followed by Chairperson Luke Walker explaining why WWRT had come into existance and the aims of the Trust.
There then followed a Q&A session. 
The meeting was very positve and we are now looking to move things on.

Follow up meeting

A second meeting was held at the Waggon & Horses on Saturday 28th July to review progress and set out tasks prior to the Official launch of the Trust.  It proved very useful and the general concensus was that things were moving on more or less as planned.
