French Delegation Agree Waterways Link-Up Following East Riding Visit

A delegation from Val du Cher, in France, has concluded a successful visit to the East Riding to finalise a waterways cooperation project with the Coast, Wolds, Wetlands and Waterways (CWWW) Local Action Group.

The CWWW Local Action Group is part of the rural development programme for England, LEADER, which is funded by the European Union and Defra, in which local action groups must complete a series of cooperation projects.

Following the three-day visit, an ongoing relationship with the trustees, staff and supporters of La Musee du Canal de Berry, near Montlucon, has been agreed, allowing the two groups to learn about each other’s culture and heritage, share and seek solutions to common problems and benefit from partnership working.

During their time in East Yorkshire, the French delegation visited The Yorkshire Waterways Museum, Goole, Beverley Barge and Beverley Beck and discussed the LEADER Inland Waterways Partnership Project.

It has been agreed that artefacts will be exchanged between the collections at the Yorkshire Waterways Museum and the museum in Val du Cher, that both venues will promote the other on their websites, museum staff will participate in exchange visits and that the groups will regularly communicate.
