It's day one of the Yorkshire Hydrocitizenship meeting. I've just woken up at the Victoria Mills apartments in Shipley. The flat that I am staying in is very modern and comfortable. It's situated on the ground floor of an enormous development close to the site of a mill opened by Sir Titus Salt in 1853. Salt's mill is a world heritage site. My apartment is very Ikea. I found this article in the Telegraph online in which the developers talk about their own vision and the relationship between Victoria Mills and Salt's legacy.

You can get a feel for the development by looking at this slide show here.

Last night I traveled by car with Sara Penrhyn Jones and Shelagh Hourahane from Aberystwyth. The route planner said that the journey should take three and a half hours, it took five. We are are hoping to find a quicker route home, suggestions welcome! Later on we met up with Iain Biggs, Antony Lyons and Owain Jones in the Victoria Mills Lounge Bar. It was good to be able to continue conversations in person that have started on this community.

This morning we are heading to Yorkshire Water Plc. You can find the programme for our meeting by vising the main Hydrocitizenship website. Click on this link to see the agenda.

I will be posting blogs on Hydrocitizens throughout the two days. We will also be using one of the groups on this community to keep a record of our conversations. Team members might want to take a look at this page. CLICK. Eventually we plan to populate the meeting page on the main Hydrocitizenship website with documentation and links which we hope will be helpful to ourselves and others later on.

It's day two of the big Hydrocitizenship team meeting in Shipley Yorkshire. Yesterday we went to the site of Yorkshire Water at Esholt. Today we are going to learn about Victoria Mills and then after lunch we will be going on a boat trip on the canal. 


We are trying to gather together notes from the various sessions so if you would like to see them, or are keen to share your own thoughts - whether you are at the meetings or not -  then visit the Shipley Team Meeting Group on Hydrocitizens and explore the forum tabs that have been set up there. 

We will be adding to these tabs today.

With today's sessions in mind I would like to draw attention to a few threads you may wish to familiarise yourselves with. Some of the discussions that are scheduled for today have already been taking place online. So please do have a look and respond to them by following these links. 

Visit the case study integration group. This has been set up by Michael, Andrew and Maggie. If you have thoughts on integration, then this is the place to record them.
