Below are the first individuals who have been inaugurated into the Canal Hall of Fame in 2019 – as announced at the very first Canal Volunteer Awards held at the Falkirk Wheel on Friday 24th May 2019. The inaugural awards ceremony recognised the fantastic contribution of volunteers on the Lowland Canals; their indispensable efforts have placed them at the heart of the canals, seeing them re-open to attract 22 million visits per year. Their ongoing support will see Scotland’s canals continue to prosper and will safeguard the waterways for future generations to enjoy.
