VAUGHAN WELCH LEAVES IWA

Canal Boat - - News -

Canal & River Trust Coun­cil elected boater rep­re­sen­ta­tive and for­mer In­land Wa­ter­ways As­so­ci­a­tion Deputy Chair­man Vaughan Welch has left the As­so­ci­a­tion. An IWA state­ment said that he had been asked to stand down from his na­tional com­mit­tee po­si­tions (in­clud­ing Restora­tion Com­mit­tee Chair­man), fol­low­ing what IWA con­sid­ered ‘in­ap­pro­pri­ate’ com­mu­ni­ca­tions with the fam­ily of a de­ceased sup­porter. Mr Welch de­fended his com­mu­ni­ca­tions and main­tained that he had re­signed from the As­so­ci­a­tion (and thus the com­mit­tee po­si­tions) rather than be­ing ‘re­moved’.
