2020 Awards Event Postponed

2020 Awards Event Postponed
A message from the Awards Panel in response to COVID-19

Sadly, we must confirm that the Scottish Canals Volunteer Awards 2020 has been cancelled due to COVID-19.

Like many other events, we have watched the situation evolve, closely monitored guidelines and worked with partners to review our plans. It goes without saying that the well being of our volunteers and everyone who enjoys our canals comes first and this can’t be guaranteed this season. Accordingly there is little volunteering currently taking place on our canals.

A huge amount of work has already gone into this years awards programme, one that we hoped would be the best yet. Sadly, that is not to be .... yet.

The 2020 programme will now be rolled forward into next year when hopefully life will be returning to normal. Relaunching in the spring of next year, we plan that the 2021 campaign will be an unforgettable celebration for all our volunteers after what will have been a difficult time for so many of us.

We can’t wait to see you all back enjoying the canal in the future and until then, stay safe.
