Edward has met with the Inland Waterways Association at an event in Parliament, to discuss our local canal and river network in Leicestershire, and the work being done across the country to restore and improve our network of waterways.
The Inland Waterways Association is a membership charity dedicated to protecting and restoring Britain’s network of canal and river waterways that form such an important part of our heritage and countryside.
Edward said: "Our rivers and canals are hugely important for leisure activities, but also as a vital part of our environment and countryside. In Leicestershire, and across the country, we are lucky to have some fantastic waterways. It was great to be able to hear from British Waterways & volunteers about their fantastic work to ensure they remain well-maintained, and are restored where they have fallen in to disrepair.”
