Digital control session 08 Aug 2023

Last night Keith and Sue from SMWCRT visited GCRG to talk to the wardens and committee about the digital control system that their team uses. Working with other teams is a key part of what we do so understanding their working practices is very important and it certainly has given the wardens and committee a lot to think about. There are many ways that we could further modernise the way we operate so it is very helpful to see what other teams are doing in this space. Thanks again to Keith and Sue for a thought provoking evening.
