CRT Heritage Report 2017IHBC is delighted to highlight the CPD value of the new Canal and River Trust Heritage Report for 2016-17, led by IHBC member Nigel Crowe – a 2017 School contributor – which covers a wide range of core skills and issues for conservation professionals, from conservation, repair, maintenance and improvement (CRMI) casework across the waterways, to engagement, social media, skills and training.
