There’s just one more week to submit entries for the Bearsden Festival Community Awards recognising the brilliant work of local volunteers.
We all know someone who deserves a nomination - a befriender, Scout leader, carer, choir leader, dance assistant - someone who goes the extra mile, who we couldn’t do without. We have four categories up for nominations: for young people under 25, long service to community, volunteer in arts and culture, and volunteer in health and wellbeing, and some of the entries so far have been amazing stories of service to the community.
We’re asking local schools, voluntary organisations and clubs to get the word out about the Community Awards and encourage nominations.
Young People’s Champion, Alex Murray-Reynolds has been telling young people in schools about the awards and encouraging them to get involved.
There is a simple form to fill in on the festival website at www.bearsdenfestival.org/events and paper forms can also be picked up around town.
Nominations will close on Thursday 28 March.
We’re already receiving some fabulous entries but there’s time for more special people to be recognised for what they do.
The awards will be made at the Bearsden Festival Opening Night on 10 May which is shaping up to be a fantastic occasion.
If you would like us to provide your organisation with paper copies of the nomination forms please get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 0141 942 8827.
Look out for the launch of the programme next week and put the festival dates in your diary! 10-19 May
