There are a number of people who have done significant things to help FRANK Water get where it is today. It's hard to name everyone but that doesn't mean we're not grateful to each and every person who's donated time, skill and hard graft to the cause. There are a few key people, however, who were part of the start-up team and really put their back into making sure FRANK Water got off the ground. These people are Tom Alcott, Jeremy Webb & Pete Gibbons. Thank you.
