Red Hill River

The Red Hill River is a 6.5-mile-long (10.5 km)[1] river in the Lakes Region of central New Hampshire in the United States. It is a tributary of Lake Winnipesaukee, part of the Merrimack River watershed.

The Red Hill River begins in the town of Sandwich, New Hampshire at the outlet of Red Hill Pond, just east of the village of Center Sandwich.

The river passes through Garland Pond, drops in a short river segment to Lees Pond, and ends at an arm of Moultonborough Bay on Lake Winnipesaukee.

Albion Herald Extraordinary

Albion Herald of Arms Extraordinary is the title of one of the officers of arms at the Canadian Heraldic Authority in Ottawa. Herald Extraordinary is an honorary position reserved for people who have made notable contributions to Canadian heraldry. Like the other heralds at the Authority, the name is derived from a Canadian River. Initially, there was some indication that the office would be given the title "Red Hill," but when informed that the Red Hill River is today in essence a sewer, the CHA decided to name the position "Albion," the river's name in a less polluted era.

The badge is in the loyal colours of red, white and blue, and reflects the geology of the Niagara Escarpment, over which the Red Hill River flows, creating a beautiful waterfall ("Albion Falls") that is supposedly haunted.

The office was created on 27 October 2006.

IWA National Festival

The IWA National Festival & Boat Show run by the Inland Waterways Association is one of the key annual events on the United Kingdom's inland waterways. Generally referred to as the "National" it serves several functions:

As a publicity vehicle for the IWA and inland waterways in general

To raise funds for the IWA

As a social gathering for boaters from around the country

As a campaigning eventThe four functions of the event are to some extent conflicting and in recent years the campaigning aspect has been somewhat separated by the creation of an annual "Campaign Cruise".

Arguably it is as a gathering of like minded people that the National has been most influential. The festival brings together people from all over the country who do not meet in numbers except on the festival site. The original decisions to form both the Waterway Recovery Group and the National Association of Boat Owners both arose out of informal discussions held at the National.
