I’m Jonathan in the Canal & River Trust media team. We haven’t met, but I’ve had the pleasure on Twitter.
Anyway, I am arranging a briefing next week to go through the results of the bi-annual Boat Owners Survey. It’ll be an opportunity to take stock and go through boater demographics, what they think about waterway upkeep and maintenance, value for money, customer service and lots more.
Importantly, Vince Moran (operations director) will also be there to take questions and discuss what this can mean going forward for budgets, spending priorities and other boating-related issues.
The meeting is at the Trust’s new office in Milton Keynes (above the train station) at 11am on Friday 14 September. I see from your Blog that you’ll not be boating far for the time being. However, I wanted to invite you nonetheless on the off chance you can make it. Please let me know.
I have been on my boat 6 years now that means there have been at least 3 maybe 4 bi-annual surveys. I have never been asked to take part in one that I can recall. So now they want to talk to me!!!
