PLA board <br />   appointments

In April we announced the appointment of three new non-executive directors to the PLA Board. Helen Deeble, CBE is appointed (in line with the Port of London Act) by the Secretary of State for Transport; Alun Griffiths, and Annette Justad by the PLA Board.

Helen Deeble, chief executive of the P&O Ferries Division, is a chartered accountant with more than 20 years’ experience in shipping. Alun Griffiths is currently Group HR director and board member at WS Atkins plc, Europe’s largest engineering and design consultancy. Annette Malm Justad has over 30 years’ experience in industry and shipping, working for companies including Yara International ASA, Norgas Carriers/IM Skaugen ASA and Norsk Hydro ASA.

The new board members were selected ahead of the departure from the PLA Board of deputy chairman, John Mills CBE, and board member William Everard CBE.


Tower Bridge is celebrating 120 years as London’s most iconic Thames crossing with an exhibition at The Guildhall Art Gallery.

Paintings, etchings and memorabilia highlighting its history will be showcased until mid-July.

The suspension bridge, which opens and closes almost 1,000 times a year for warships, cruise ships and other large vessels, was opened in June 1894, having cost £1.2 million to construct over eight years.


Our Riverside Code trailer was one of the most popular attractions at the South London Scout Centre event in May.
The event attracted Beavers and Cub Scouts from the London boroughs of Wandsworth, Lambeth, Southwark, Lewisham and Greenwich, all of which
have river borders as well as canals, minor rivers and large lakes. More than 1,200 Beavers and Cub Scouts attended.
Our rep, Phil Wilkinson, worked so hard that he was even praised on Twitter.
