PostSubject: Vote for the best River Thames lock   Sun Aug 19, 2012 5:14 pm

15-Aug-2012

River Thames’ users are invited to vote for the best kept lock as the Environment Agency launches its annual waterways awards. Voting has opened for the ‘Best Lock Site’ award.

River users and other members of the public who visit the rural River Thames between Lechlade and Teddington are being asked to vote.

The Thames Waterways Award rewards the hard work of waterways staff along the River Thames and encourages good customer relations.

Matt Carter, Waterways Operations Manager at the Environment Agency, said: “ A variety of people contribute to the overall customer experience - permanent staff, seasonal staff and volunteers. The awards provide a chance for members of the public to let us know how we are doing on the River Thames, so we can reward these people for their great teamwork.”

Votes can be cast online at www.environment-agency.gov.uk/bestthameslock from now until Sunday 31 October and winners will be announced in December.

When voting for the Best Lock Site, river users are asked to rate the level of service received at the lock and consider the locks' gardens, general maintenance, cleanliness and availability of information.
Everyone who casts a vote this year will be entered into a prize draw with the opportunity to win a 20 per cent discount on next year's River Thames boating licence.

The 2012 waterways awards are kindly sponsored by Peter Brett Associates LLP.

Shepperton scoops top Thames lock award for second year

27-Feb-2013

Shepperton Lock has scooped the award for Best Lock on the River Thames for the second year running, after hundreds of people voted in the Environment Agency’s 2012 Thames Waterways Awards.

Steve Newman, lock keeper at Shepperton Lock, said: “We are delighted to have won this award for the second year running. A big thank you to all those who voted for Shepperton this year, the recognition makes all the hard work of myself and the team worthwhile.

“The Thames has always had a good reputation for its picturesque locks and lovely gardens and this competition can only enhance its reputation for being the best manned waterway in the world. Long may it continue!”

Although Shepperton Lock was a clear winner amongst the public, other locks were awarded commendations due to a high level of positive feedback from many people. Locks that were given these special commendations were Bray, Hambleden, Goring and Eynsham locks, which were all singled out by river users.

Votes were entered into a prize draw and randomly chosen winner Martin Hayward, from Reading, was delighted to win a 20 per cent discount off his 2013 River Thames boat licence. "The lock keepers perform a very important function in sometimes difficult circumstances so I am grateful for the opportunity of showing my support by voting through your awards scheme.”

Matt Carter, Waterways Operations Manager at the Environment Agency, said: “These awards give members of the public an excellent chance to let us know how we are doing on the River Thames. We received some great feedback about our locks and waterways staff. A variety of people contribute to the overall customer experience - permanent staff, seasonal staff and volunteers.

“They are also a great opportunity to recognise the important work our staff carry out to keep the River Thames in good working condition for our all customers.”

The award winners will be presented with vouchers and a plaque to mark their success.

The Awards, kindly sponsored by Peter Brett Associates, invited members of the public to vote throughout the boating season from May until the end of October 2012. “We are proud to have sponsored this prestigious awards scheme for the second year running. Congratulations to all the lock staff along the river who make the Thames the special place that it is." said Steve Capel-Davies, of Peter Brett Associates.
