The Calder Navigation Society has won another award. This is an extract from a message that was received from My Mirfield Business & Community Awards earlier this week.

" I am delighted to inform you that you have been awarded one of the top awards at the 2020 MyMirfield Community & Business Awards - The Above & Beyond Award

You have been selected by the MyMirfield team - plus numerous nominations from members of the public who wish to see those responsible for making the repainting of Halfpenny Bridge happen after so many years. A common comment was that despite others saying something should be done, you made it happen, and as a part of the gateway into Mirfield, makes a much more positive impression.

Awards Evening

All finalists and yourselves will be honoured and celebrated at the black-tie evening from 6 pm on Saturday 28th March at the Cedar Court Hotel just outside Bradford at the end of the M606. The evening will begin at 6 pm with a sparkling reception, followed by a three-course celebration meal from 7 pm. There will also be entertainment, live music, dancers, fundraising, the award winners themselves, plus a few surprises along the way. The evening will close around 1 am.

Everyone is welcome, not just those shortlisted, as it is a night packed full of entertainment, raising money for local good causes, as well as the awards themselves. There are also 100 additional tickets available (£35 each) on a first-come, first-served basis with NO MAXIMUM– and once all tickets have been sold, no more will become available.
