The Patron's role within the society is one of support and to assist the society in meeting its educational aims. This can be done by directly supporting promotional and educational activities alongside or in conjunction with other UKSTT events and programmes with attendance encouragement, provision of facilities and/or catering, and the general encouragement of meeting the society's aims of increasing the knowledge, use, and awareness of trenchless technology and systems for the benefit of the society and the environment.

It is a surprising but real honour to be a patron of the UKSTT .
You see , despite a supposed gulf between biology and engineering there is a real bridge in both interest and ingenuity here .
I am constantly astonished by the rapidity of invention and technical innovation shown by the members and enjoy the opportunity to help promote the multitude of benefits which we all enjoy on account of these to a wider audience and celebrate them at the annual awards ceremony .
I now not only admire moles and badgers but also those remarkable devices which tunnel , line , restore and repair with equal skill .

Water is essential to life and to the communities in which we work.
Our focus is delivering the best quality drinking water and returning waste water safely to the environment today, tomorrow and for the longer term. Our last 25-year strategy document, ‘Focus on water’ was launched in 2007.
It sets out longer term aspirations as a water company.

Since we produced ‘Focus on water’, our core aspirations have stayed the same, but the external environment in which we work has continued to evolve; the challenges we face are changing, and so are our customers’ expectations. We’re currently updating our strategy to reflect this dynamic environment.
