Each of Amy's guests have donated to Lancaster’s edition of the Museum of Water and will be invited to recount the meaningful water stories behind their unique donations.

Ben Surridge: is a lecturer in water science at Lancaster University. His research focusses on how land management influences the chemistry and biology of streams, rivers and groundwater.

Emma Westling: is an environmental social scientist at Sheffield University. She researches the relationships between people and water, focussing on how decisions regarding the management of water are taken.

Fr. Paul Embery is one of two Catholic chaplains based at Lancaster University’s Chaplaincy. The Chaplaincy was built in 1969 as an ecumenical venture between three faiths, which sees Fr. Paul work closely with the Anglican and Free Churches also in situ.
