News


All of the articles in the latest edition of our newsletter have been submitted by our readers. The range of topics covered reflects the diversity of the Waterways Partnership. It also demonstrates just how active our partners are and the relevance of the work they do.  

In early May, the Chair of our Executive Committee, Jeanette Rotchell, was recognised at this year’s Chairman’s Awards, organised by East Riding of Yorkshire Council. At the presentation ceremony, Jeanette was named as one of three nominees for the Environment Award. In particular, she was commended for her contributions to the Waterways Partnership and leadership on the Sullied Sediments project. Jeanette’s nomination has helped to shine a light on the achievements of the Partnership at this prominent annual event.   

The Sobriety Project in Goole has also received a very special accolade from the Garfield Weston Foundation. Their Director, Paul Cooper, and Business Development Manager, Clare Hunt, attended the Foundation’s 60th anniversary celebration, which was hosted by His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales at Buckingham Palace on 14 May 2018. 

Finally, we will be announcing the date of our next Joint Forum in the coming weeks. At this meeting, partners will be updated on activities relating to Market Weighton Canal, Gypsey Race and the Aire and Calder and Driffield Navigation. It should be an informative meeting and we are looking forward to seeing partners once again.
