TIRELESS efforts for the local community were recognised last week in the Scottish Civic Trust Awards 2011.
The prestigious Scottish Civic Trust Civic Champion Award was given to Ron Smith, nominated by Linlithgow Civic Trust for his work locally, helping to preserve and improve the environment, and he received the accolade from culture minister Fiona Hyslop at a special ceremony in Glasgow.
Alex Adamson at Linlithgow Civic Trust said: “The award was a recognition of the many years of work which Ron has put into helping to protect and improve the built environment, both in a voluntary capacity in Linlithgow but also in his working life in Glasgow. Linlithgow Civic Trust is delighted at his success.”
Two pupils from Low Port Primary were also recognised in the Photoarch photographic competition, with Rupert Eagers commended and Alexander Bohle highly commended.
All competition entries including images of the landscaping work done at the Water Yett and West Port, and Rupert and Alexander’s successful entries, are on public exhibition at the Lighthouse, Glasgow from March 15 to May 28.
