THE Canal & River Trust is seeking a new head of boating following the resignation of Mike Grimes.
He will be working up until Easter with the recruitment process for his replacement starting immediately.
Ian Rogers, customer services and operations director, said: “Mike has made a really valuable contribution to the boating team and has laid the foundations for a clear, productive way of working for and with boaters.
“Throughout his time at the Trust he has been massively passionate about making sure boaters’ voices are heard and responded to. We have benefited greatly from his experience and wish him all the best in the future.”
Mike said: “Over the last two years I’ve spent with the boating team they’ve achieved so much, and I leave knowing they will continue to carry on doing great things for the benefit of boaters and the Trust. I have every confidence in the boating management team who will continue to lead the department and ensure things run smoothly.
“I will be taking some time off over the summer to decide what to do next and see where my next challenge lies, you never know you may even see me out boating!”
