#LKOY #CRT #HotelBoat
On behalf of British Marine Inland Boating Hotel Boats Lady Teal was very proud to present the Lock Keeper of the year award to John, Nick & Richard who work the iconic Bingley Five Rise staircase locks.
We hosted Harry Arnold MBE (Waterways photographer & Journalist), Richard Parry (CEO CRT), Chantelle Seaborn (North West Manager CRt) & Bob Pointing (Chair CRT Northwest Partnership) on board Lady Teal.
This is a very prestigious award given annually to the keepers voted for by the hotel boats. These guys are always helpful, smiling and informative, our guests love them. They are flexible and safe in their approach, who could ask for more.
BBC Look North attended and did film, though we haven’t seen it yet.
Definitely something a bit different for our guests, and we have never seen so many CRT keepers and managers at the Five before!
These guys really reflect the customer service ethic that has always been with the guys on the ground and that CRT now clearly recognises and celebrates.
