On Friday 9th October we attended the 9th annual Derbyshire Heritage Awards at Cromford Mills and were delighted to come away with the Judges Special Award for our work engaging with the local community!  This award recognises the Museum Roadshow events that have taken place all over the borough of Erewash this Summer and are part of our Heritage Lottery Funded project.

The Awards are run by the Derbyshire Museums and Heritage Forum and celebrate all the wonderful work taking place in museums, historic houses and heritage sites across the county. The Awards were funded by the Derbyshire Museums and Heritage Forum and a grant from Museum Development East Midlands.

The Awards were judged and presented by Joy Hales (Editor, Derbyshire Life Magazine), Franne Wills (Head of Service: Development, Communities and Wellbeing Service, Leicestershire County Council) and Sir Richard FitzHerbert (Chief Executive of Tissington Hall). Award winners received a plaque and highly commended projects were awarded a framed certificate. There were 25 entries from 14 different organisations this year, so the judges were forced to make some very difficult decisions when choosing the winners.

Master of Ceremonies for the night was Andy Potter, Afternoon Show Presenter for BBC Radio Derby and he ensured that the evening ran smoothly whilst keeping the guests entertained.

Volunteer Coordinator Rebecca Buck, Learning and Community Development Officer Debbi Mills and Museum Manager Helen Martinez attended the ceremony and are shown here collecting the award!
