'Canal & River Trust' to succeed British Waterways
Canal & River Trust is the name chosen for the successor Organisation to British Waterways as it moves to it's change in status during 2012.
The transition trustees of the new charity being established to tend 2,000 miles of canals and rivers in England and Wales from April 2012 announced that it will be called the Canal & River Trust (or Glandwr Cymru in Wales) and have unveiled its new symbol.
The decision was taken following extensive public and internal consultation and market research into the replacement for the name and symbol of “British Waterways.” They reflect the important step the Government is taking in creating a new successor organisation to hold the waterways in trust for the nation in perpetuity. The change also offers an opportunity to attract the attention of, and to appeal to, the wider public.
