CRT boss praises Waterways Chaplains

At a service in Braunston Church yesterday Richard Parry, Chief Executive of the Canal and River Trust, spoke to praise the work of the Waterways Chaplains.

Mr Parry acknowledged the fact that there are some who live on the waterways and who are in difficult circumstances. The Waterways Chaplains, he said, do a great job in helping them.

The service was held at the end of a training day for the Waterways Chaplaincy.

Many waterways chaplains are also members of the Boaters' Christian Fellowship; Jan and I went to the service. Richard Parry may not be flavour of the month for many boaters perturbed by the rebranding of CRT, but he does seem to make a huge effort to get to as many boating-related events as possible.
