Last night was the Annual Provost's Community Awards in Renfrewshire, the categories include carer, special needs child, and community activist and an excellent time was had by all. The Paisley Grammar School Ceilidh band played for the entertainment during dinner and were excellent, and the food was fab.
All of the nominees are given a keepsake of the evening and are announced on a video explaining their achievements and who nominated them, it is always an excellent night and the important people in the room are not the elected Councillor's it is the members of the community who have been nominated and those who have nominated.
Personally I wanted to thank the staff involved in running the evening, in preparing the food, in composing the video and in whittling down the list of nominees to the three for each award attending on the night.
I know it is a bit corny but it is true, there are no losers in this process everyone of the nominees inspires you and makes you feel humble, they make you want to get out there and do something in your community, I just wish that the night was on TV to let people in Scotland see the calibre of people in Renfrewshire.
