Message from the Branch Secretary
A belated spring is in the air - at long last.
We have a busy couple of months ahead with two technical
meetings, a conference and awards dinner, the AGM and our branch
We start with the Irwell Water Framework Directive Catchment
Pilot meeting at Salford University on 17th April.
Our big event in April is the Pollution Challenge conference and
awards dinner. This is a joint venture between CIWEM and the
Environment Agency to harvest innovative ideas to tackle urban
diffuse pollution from Universities.
Update: The presentations from the Pollution
Challenge are available on the Past Events
On 30th April we will be holding our Annual General Meeting,
this year at Liverpool John Moores University. We will also be
holding the technical meeting on Coastal Management that was
postponed earlier this year.
Our branch Annual Dinner will be held on Friday 17th May. This
year we return to Cranage Hall, Holmes Chapel, following a
successful and enjoyable event at the same venue last year. Our
Annual Dinner is a great opportunity to relax and network with
water and environmental practitioners from across the region. This
year the single ticket price is £65, and bookings from individuals,
small and large groups are all very welcome. A three course dinner,
inspirational speeches and entertainment are all included, so book
now to avoid disappointment! Please contact Hannah
Austin for more information.
Looking forward to June, we have a technical meeting on the
challenges of creating the Canal and Rivers Trust.
As always, keep an eye on the events page for the latest
