As part of this year's theme connecting community, creativity and mental health, Bearsden Festival Association is organising Community Awards to recognise the brilliant work of volunteers.
Judging Panel member, Audrey Bennie, says: 'We're hoping for a great response because we know there's so much good work going on and it's great for volunteers to be recognised for giving their time to help others. At the Festival in May we'll be having a Volunteer Expo showcasing all the different organisations and groups - hopefully this will inspire some new volunteers to get involved."
We have four categories:
Young Volunteer of the Year (under 25)
Long Service to the Community
Volunteer of the Year in Arts and Culture
Volunteer of the Year in Health and Wellbeing.
Who will you nominate?
You can pick up nomination forms in outlets across town or at www.bearsdenfestival.org/events, and get your entries in by 28 March.
The Awards Ceremony will be at our fabulous Festival Opening Night at Bearsden Academy on 10 May. Hardeep Singh Kohli will be our special guest host, and we have lots of great things going on that night... more info soon.
