The charity making life better by water

Customer Forum

As part of our commitment to engage with the boaters on our canal network in Wales, we hosted a customer forum for users of the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal at Llanfoist Village Hall.

The forum provided Trust staff with the opportunity to deliver presentations on the Trust’s ongoing work to maintain the 35-mile navigable section of the canal.

There were also opportunities for the boaters and boating businesses in attendance to participate in question and answer sessions with Trust staff as part of the forum.

You can revisit the discussions by watching the videos below from the forum.
