Renfrewshire Provost’s reminder on Awards nominations.

Renfrewshire’s Provost Anne Hall is urging people to ‘take their last chance’ to nominate people for a leading awards scheme.

The Provost’s Community Awards honour those who devote their time to helping others in the Renfrewshire community or who are an inspiration to others.


Open to people who live and work in Renfrewshire, nominations can be made up until 31 January 2014.

This year the categories for the awards have been revamped into five themes: Community Group, Community Volunteer, Sporting Achievement, Carers’ Award and Employer of the Year.

Provost Hall said: “Taking time to honour our unsung heroes is an opportunity to give something back to those dedicated individuals and groups in our communities.

“I would encourage everyone who knows a special carer, a sporting enthusiast thriving in adversity or an employer exceeding expectations in developing employees to take the time and nominate them for an award.

“The categories in this year’s awards have been redesigned into five easily identifiable and distinctive themes but have kept the same spirit behind the awards.

“It’s never been easier to put someone forward. Nomination forms can be made online and it only takes a few minutes of your time.”

Nomination forms can be filled in online at Printed forms are also available at Council offices and facilities.

The closing date for nominations is 31 January 2014.

Winning candidates will be invited to the Provost’s Community Awards ceremony on 21 March 2014. The evening will be compered by Gus Michael of Pulse Community Radio.
