So far this year, (2019), the Erewash Canal Preservation & Development Association (ECPDA) have been honoured to receive two charity awards. We are also delighted that the Canal & River Trust have been awarded Green Flag status for the Erewash Canal.
Early June ECPDA was the prestigious Queen's Award for Voluntary Service - the MBE for volunteer groups.
Late June, ECPDA won a 'Highly Commended' from the East Midlands Charity Awards for their work on the Erewash Canal, Langley Mill Basin and their workboat Pentland.
In mid-July the Canal & River Trust were awarded Green Flag status for the Erewash Canal. This is a reflection on the work that has been done by ECPDA volunteers over the last 50 years. Well done to you all.
