British Empire Award in 2023 New Years Honours List

Staff, Trustees, Directors and Volunteers at the Dudley Canal and Caverns were delighted to hear one of our long term Directors and Volunteers Lyn Head was awarded the British Empire Medal (BEM) in this years New Years Honours list.

Recognising her services for the community across the West Midlands and her work she does here on our site, supporting Chit Chat, our social befriending group which meets weekly, always being on duty during events and activities, helping shape our future through her work as a Director of Enterprises and training new volunteers, Lyn is a constant warm and welcoming face on site.

When she was initially told about the award, characteristically her first words were she was not worthy, but we can assure you she is and we are all so proud of this amazing achievement and recognition.
