Rochdale Canal Connections event looks lively

Posted: 25.07.11

Pennine Prospects is playing host to an exciting Waterways event on on Wednesday 14th September 2011 in Todmorden Town Hall. The event is focusing on the subject of Canals and looks at our experiences both here and in other parts of Yorkshire.

With speakers such as Tony Hales, Chair of British Waterways and Roger Hanbury, Chief Executive of The Waterways Trust in addition to Discussion Panel members such as David Baldacchino, British Waterways & Mark Walton, the Waterways Project @CIVA, the morning session looks set to be both lively and informative.

The event then explores some of the practical experiences of undertaking Canal projects in both the South Pennines Leader area and the Coast Wolds, Wetlands and Waterways Leader area. “Working in Partnership” is the key phrase and the event will showcase what works …. and maybe what doesn’t! We then look at our shared vision for what might happen in the future and finish off the day with a visit to the Canal to look at a recently finished project.

The event starts at 9.45am in Todmorden Town Hall on 14th September and you can download a full programme here and a booking form here. Booking is essential as spaces are limited.

Look forward to meeting you on the day.
