Picture of the audience watching the B&MK Annual Partnership ConferenceLike a searchlight picking out hidden activity, the scale and scope of the support and commitment of local councils as part of the consortium driving the B&MK waterway project forward shone during the third annual partnership conference of the B&MK Waterway Trust. Its chairman, Graham Mabbutt, described what he heard as “uplifting, inspirational, enlightening and encouraging”. 

Some 100 delegates from councils, businesses, education and community groups gathered at the Open University to hear Councillor Morris say she was delighted that Milton Keynes Council continued to support and be committed to the waterway project, and that this continued in the Council’s core strategy. She looked forward to things beginning to appear.
