Third Sector copyBW has published a list of 8 people appointed to advise on the setting up of the new charity for the transition period to April 2012. After this they will take charge from the current BW Board.
They seem to me to be admirable choices, each bringing experience and expertise from similar major charities. Tony Hales, current BW Chairman has been appointed Chairman of the Trustees.

The other founding trustees recommended by the Advisory Panel are: Lynne Berry, boat owner and chief executive of WRVS; John Bridgeman, British Waterways vice chairman and leading expert in competition and fair trading; Jane Cotton, change management expert and a deputy chief executive and HR director of Oxfam; John Dodwell, long-term waterways campaigner and former chair of the Commercial Boat Operators Association; Tom Franklin, leading advisor on open spaces and chief executive of the Ramblers; Nigel Hugill, British Waterways board member and property expert and; Simon Thurley, historian and chief executive of English Heritage.

They will be unpaid and contribute 3 to 4 days a month during transition then 2 days after.
