Those awards

Published: Monday, 02 October 2017

When you mentioned Canal & River Trust giving a statutory award to both Scotland and Wales, you forgot something.

The Trust also gave its statutory award to the IWA.  We mustn't forget that!

You scratch my back

If you take a close look at those waterway awards by CaRT you will notice that most have a bearing on something done for it, so it looks a lot like 'you scratch my back and I'll scratch yours'.

Not really earned

Reading through those water awards by Canal & River Trust it makes me realise why the narrowboatworld policy is not to include awards anymore, for those mean very little.

It seems every magazine, many web sites and even marinas are showering awards like confetti on all and sundry,  Surely they are not really earned as a proper award should be.
