Patrons

We are privileged to have the support of our two patrons:

Rt Hon John Bercow MP

Lord Boswell of Aynho

The Rt Hon John Bercow, MP for Buckingham, became one of the patrons of the Buckingham Canal Society in October 2010. At a meeting with the Society and Buckinghamshire County Council, John said “I am delighted to become a patron of the Buckingham Canal Society. I have been very impressed with the vision of the canal restoration. It has many potential benefits that it can bring to Buckingham and the Ouse Valley both from economic, environmental and potential flood management perspectives. Local residents and councillors have come together and are driving this through both the Buckingham Canal Society and the Buckingham Local Area Forum, demonstrating the best practices of the community working together with the support of local government. This project will clearly benefit all the communities it touches both in collaboration that it brings and the end result of a restored waterway.”
