AWARD: Recognising innovation

The EBDA Award, one of the oldest community awards in the Borders and North Northumberland, which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year, recognises innovation, skill and enterprise in the area in which the old Eastern Borders Development Association was so effective in promoting regeneration in the 1960s and 1970s.
