Submit your canal and waterways-based projects by 17 March
Entries are now open for the Canal & River Trust 2017 Living Waterways Awards.
The annual awards celebrate the enrichment of waterways-based projects, by both professionally led and voluntary teams, in seven categories:
- art & interpretation
- community & volunteering
- contribution to the built environment
- education & learning
- natural environment
- recreation & tourism
- restoration & historic environment
Last year’s winners included Porter Brook pocket park, Sheffield, in the contribution to the built environment category, with a commendation for Saltisford canal arm gardens and orchard. Read our report here.
Richard Parry, chief executive of the Canal & River Trust, said: ‘We are searching for those people and projects that have done the most to make a difference to the nation’s canals and rivers – transforming the places they pass through, and enriching the lives of all who use them.’
The closing date for entries this year is 17 March. Winners will be announced at a ceremony in Birmingham on 27 September.
