Thames Heritage Trust Awards

The River Thames Society is pleased to have worked with the Thames Heritage Trust on the development of its awards.  The Thames Heritage Awards are made annually to groups and organisations involving young people under the age of 25 which stimulate use of and interest in the river, as well as bringing benefit to the Thames.  Nominations may be made by individuals, groups or organisations and must demonstrate benefit under one or more themes.

The main Thames Heritage Trust Award in recognition of volunteer youth activities of benefit to the river community and environment went to the Petersham & Ham Sea Scouts.

Branch area awards went to the Shepperton Slalom Canoe Club and Skerries for Schools.

The THT John Coleman Trophy for an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to the Thames went to George Mellett, who has served on many Thames-based vessels including as skipper of the River Thames Boat project's Thames Venturer.
