Train, Sett and match the operator to the permit!

 

Our grateful thanks go to all the members and volunteers who participated of the weekend. Special thanks go to Dave Wedd who was pivotal for the training. Dave is an instructor with Waterways Recovery Group (WRG) whose permit scheme we use to operate construction plant and satisfy insurance criteria.

The dumper drivers approved during the weekend as safe to operate are Richard Lewis, Philip Strangeway, Alan Mynard, Anthony Smith-Roberts, Terry Cavender, Pete Carr, Claire Tupman and Anton Hobbs. Richard was also evaluated and subsequently has now been ratified as an instructor for this equipment.

The excavator drivers approved during the weekend as safe to operate are Alan Mynard, Anthony Smith-Roberts, Richard Lewis, Philip Strangeway, Claire Tupman, Anton Hobbs and Pete Carr. Richard was also evaluated and subsequently has now been ratified as an instructor for this equipment. All permits are subject to final validations by IWA/WRG.

Thanks go to Nick Hawes of ATN Farms for his ongoing support and allowing us to train on the land at Bourton Meadow. This training now gives us the expertise we need for our re-watering work at Cosgrove. We look forward to getting underway there soon.
