The Eastern Branch

The Eastern Branch is the newest of the Branches having only been formed in 2007 and covers East Anglia and parts of the East Midlands.  Activities within the Branch include technical evenings and site visits which tend to be water industry related topics but are currently moving into topics from the gas and electricity industries and tend to be hosted in Peterborough. Please check with the Branch for more information and in the Events section for upcoming events.

Our last annual dinner was hosted in Peterborough in 2015 but we aim to move this around the region year-on-year.  The Eastern Branch is a great host to a number of fantastic networking events for both the members of the senior and young members of the branch.

The Eastern Branch is fortunate to have an active Young Persons network who organise and run a number of events in the region including technical paper evenings, an educational day, and a paper compettition with a significant cash first prize.
