WI has won the Public Sector Award from the [Dublin] Docklands Business Forum. The award is for
[…] its active contribution to the Docklands Summer Festival, the South Docks Festival, Tall Ships Festival and Docklands community life throughout 2012.
With docklands moorings becoming available, WI may have a chance of retaining its award next year.
Incidentally, we learned earlier this week about music at the Box in the Docks; the Public Sector Award press release has more information about the Box:
Waterways Ireland owns and manages a multipurpose centre in the Basin which is used as a Visitor Centre during the summer season and provided a linchpin for the festival and events as well as community activity such as the Waterways Ireland Community Choir.
And we hear a rumour that models are being built ….
By the way, WI is compiling its events guide for next year: get your event in to them by 25 January 2013.
