  • Adult Achiever, sponsored by Diageo
  • Special Needs (sponsored by Scottish Power and former Provost Ronnie Burns)
  • Community Volunteer Award (sponsored by BASF Performance Products UK)
  • Carer’s Award (sponsored by former Provost Nancy Allison)
  • Spirit of Fairtrade Award, (sponsored by the Piazza)
  • Child of Achievement (sponsored by Glasgow Airport Ltd)

Provost Lawson said: “The Provost’s Community Awards are always a very special occasion and will be even more so for me this year as this is my last year as Provost.

“That’s why I want to make them the best yet and I’m reaching out to all parts of community to encourage nominations. If you know someone extra special through work, school, church or maybe it’s a friend or a family member fill in a form and let us know.”

Nomination forms are available at all council buildings or on the council’s website www.renfrewshire.gov.uk
