In an increasingly fast-paced and crowded world, our historic canals and rivers provide a local haven for people and nature.
The Canal & River Trust is the charity entrusted with the care of 2,000 miles of waterways in England and Wales.
Underpinning all the Trusts activities are 5 core values (Open, Caring, Local, Involvement and Excellence)
We want to engage with all the people who have a part to play in the waterways. We need to show that we care; to be open in our communications; to promote local ideas and support local communities; and that we offer genuine involvement in our work. And, of course, underpinning all of this we strive for excellence in everything we do.
Achievement of the Green Flag Award for the Macclesfield Canal is a major milestone in being able to demonstrate, through rigorous external validation, the progress we have made in living up to those values.
