Helen Hutt attended the recent conference and reports:
Held in Birmingham, 21 March 2015, organised jointly by Worcester, Birmingham and Droitwich Canals Society and Canal & River Trust. About 70 attendees.
Speakers: Rob Jackson, Rob Jackson Consulting (volunteer programme management); Charley Johnston, BCNS; Daniel Haynes, Birmingham University Conservation Volunteers; Sophie Bond, Army Cadets; Beverley Gobbett, CAMRA; Aniela Kaczmarczyk, Tinder Foundation; Nicky Wakeford, C&RT
