John is Lock Keeper of the Year
Bristol’s John Rosenthal has been awarded Lock Keeper of the Year 2018.
The hotel boat division of British Marine Inland Boating, chaired by Nick Mead, voted for the nominees and the final award was presented to John, who is based at Netham Lock.
The award is open not only to lock keepers, but to all waterways staff who have offered outstanding assistance to waterways users.
“John was voted for by the members of the British Marine Inland Boating contingent thanks to his fantastic contribution to the smooth running of our industry,” said Nick. “John helped a number of boats at Netham Lock and was noted as being helpful, accommodating and friendly; going above and beyond in the level of service he provides.”
Nick added: “As professional boaters we like to recognise the professionalism of navigation authority staff, especially when they give exceptional service to boaters. What makes canals unique is the living heritage of boating and navigation.”
