Successful TEP Summer Networking Event

Pat Fitzsimons, Director TEP, with the Doggett’s Coat and Badge winners


Over 200 people, including members and stakeholders, enjoyed the summer networking event held in the beautiful Fishmongers’ Banqueting Hall on 20th June.


The Doggett’s Coat and Badge winners- winners of the oldest rowing race in the world – greeted guests.


Anusha Shah, TEP’s new Chair, awarded TEP’s first fellowship to Andy Mitchell, CEO of Tideway, for his company’s commitment to making the Thames a sustainable example to the world. In addition to building the Tideway Tunnel, a new sewer to prevent untreated sewage overflowing into the Thames, Tideway will also open up new areas for the public to enjoy the river.

Anusha also took the opportunity to recognise the contribution of two of TEP’s former trustees – Victor Freeney and Nigel Challis.


Other speakers were Martin Baggs, Client Director for Water Utilities Market and  Chris Baines, TEP President, who described TEP’s work and showed a clip from our upcoming documentary featuring Sir David Attenborough – The Living Thames.
