Jack Lewin Prize
 

The Rivers and Coastal Group makes an annual award to a person, group of persons or a representative of a project, who, in the opinion of teh current Committee has made a significant contribution to the development and/or promotiion of the rivers and coastal topics of interest.

In 2013 the Trophy is awarded to Sue Cashmore the Chair of Cockermouth Flood Action Group, that played a pivotal role in the partnership that developed and facilitated the implementation of the Cockermouth Flood Alleviation Scheme, following the flooding in 2009. The Cockermouth Flood Action Group played a key part in helping to secure funding through facilitating a public vote on whether the local residents of Cockermouth should contribute to the scheme through an additional precept on their council tax, raising £40k per year for three years (£120k in total). The Cockermouth Flood Action Group separately raised £215k, (inc. contributions from local residents, businesses and the Cumbria Community Foundation charitable trust).
