Black Country waterways enthusiast takes new appointment
Waterways enthusiast Graham Fisher has been appointed as a member of the team overseeing the transition of British Waterways to the charitable sector.
Graham, a writer and broadcaster based in Kingswinford, becomes part of the the trial Local Waterway Partnerships that will advise on and influence the management of canals and rivers in the North West and the West Midlands.
