Renfrewshire’s unsung heroes have been honoured at the 2012 Provost’s Community Awards.

STV’s Sean Batty and River City star Tom Urie joined Renfrewshire’s Provost Celia Lawson for the celebrations which recognise the special achievements of local heroes.

The awards, now in their 14th year, were also the last to be hosted by Provost Lawson before she steps down in May.

Each of the nominees, their families and the people who nominated them were invited to the ceremony, held at the Glynhill Hotel, Renfrew.
This year’s winners were:
Arts and Culture Award (sponsored by Acre Industrial and Cleaning Services) – The Buddy Beat
Adult Achiever Award (sponsored by Diageo) – Alice Beaton, Lamont Farm.
Special Needs Award (sponsored by Scottish Power and former Provost Ronnie Burns) – Edward Garry, Paisley
Community Volunteer Award (sponsored by BASF Performance Products UK) – Ian Williams, Paisley

Carer’s Award (sponsored by former Provost Nancy Allison) – Irene Struthers, Johnstone

Spirit of Fairtrade Award, (sponsored by the Piazza Shopping Centre) – Katrina Millar and Brooke Hepburn, Gleniffer High School

Child of Achievement (sponsored by Glasgow Airport Ltd) – Robbie Colquhoun, Paisley.

This year for the first time, there was also an overall winner’s award, chosen by the panel of judges from all the categories. Overall winner’s award went to Alice Beaton, for her service of more than 20 years to the Lamont Farm charity in Erskine.

Provost Lawson said: “The Provost’s Community Awards are always a very special occasion and this year was particularly special for me as it was my last time hosting the awards.

“It is one of my favourite jobs as Provost to be able to host this event and pay tribute to the many people who make such worthwhile contributions to our communities and overcome significant personal difficulties and tragedies at the same time. All the winners and nominees were fantastic and an inspiration to others. I’d like to congratulate them all, as well as the sponsors, without whom the awards wouldn’t be possible.”

Sean Batty said: “Being from Renfrewshire myself, it is a great pleasure for me to be able to join the Provost in honouring these local residents for all their achievements and contributions to the community. It’s always really inspiring and a really great, positive event. The winners, and nominees, are all very deserving and I really enjoyed meeting them and hearing their stories. It’s also been a pleasure to work closely with Provost Lawson on this and several other community events over the past few years and would also congratulate her on her huge contribution to the community as well.”

Renfrewshire Council Leader Brian Lawson also spoke at the event to congratulate Provost Lawson on all her work over the past five years.

He said: “The Provost’s Community Awards have become one of the key community events in Renfrewshire over the past 14 years and have grown under Provost Lawson to incorporate awards that recognise local achievements in Fairtrade and Arts and Culture. She has always been a huge supporter of the community and local charities and will be sadly missed as Provost. So as well as all very deserving winners and nominees, it’s also fitting to congratulate the Provost.”

Paisley MOD 2013

Paisley MOD 2013

Mòd Phàislig & Voices in Paisley are offering an exciting opportunity to compose the tune ‘Paisley welcomes the Royal National Mod 2013’which will celebrate the historic visit of the renowned Gaelic festival to the town in 2013. As their contribution to Weaving Musical Threads, the arts extravaganza which takes place across Renfrewshire on 3 & 4 March, the Mòd Phàislig 2013 team have combined with Voices in Paisley to host this competition, with the winner being unveiled on Saturday 3 March when a number of Gaelic choirs will perform in the town as part of the celebrations.

In order to enter the competition email or post a manuscript of your composition to the Mòd Phàislig team. Do not put your name on the manuscript as the judging will be anonymous. It would be useful if entrants could also submit some audio of the tune being played, although this is not essential. In addition to the manuscript, a covering letter is required with full contact details, as well as any information you feel is necessary. E-mail entries to modphaislig2013@yahoo.co.uk or post to Mòd Phàislig 2013, 12 Ben Nevis Road, Paisley, PA27LA by 8 February. If you have any queries contact Ealasaid MacDonald on 07535514385

In addition to having the honour of their tune being the soundtrack to the Mòd Phàislig celebrations, the winner will receive a cheque for £150. Judging the competition to the final two are three stalwarts of traditional music, Duncan Nicholson, Pipe Major of Strathclyde Police Pipe Band, Brian Laurie of the Brian Laurie Accordion Music School and Andrew Gifford of the renowned band Fiddlers Bid. It will be the audience at the Gaelic Choirs event on 3 March that will make the final decision.

Jim Drennan, Chair of Voices in Paisley said:

‘We are delighted to be working with Mòd Phàislig 2013 as our contribution to Weaving Musical Threads. The tune will provide a lovely soundtrack to the preparations for the Mòd, and will be a lasting legacy. We hope composers from Renfrewshire and afar take the opportunity to be part of two exciting events.’

Ealasaid MacDonald, Convenor of Mòd Phàislig 2013, said

‘This is an excellent opportunity for people to be at the centre of the Mòd Phàislig celebrations. The tune will be central at all events as we prepare for the Mòd and also while it is here in the town. We are grateful to our judges for giving their time to judge and I know they are looking forward to seeing the different interpretations of ‘Paisley welcomes the Royal National Mòd 2013’.
