MP Support

As part of our desire for continuous improvement in our operations, we decided to adopt a PIG, or Performance Improvement Group. This is a essentially a small group of people who come up with new ideas for the trust, to help keep us on our toes and be the best we can be. Their latest endeavour has included rallying the support of local MPs from areas along the canal. 

We're pleased to announce that five MPs have expressed their support for our cause, and will help us to promote the canal restoration when we call on them. The PIG are now working to explicitly define the nature of their involvement but for now we are please to announce that the following MPs are backing the WBCT:
