Award Winners!!We were very excited to be nominated for a Scottish Rural Award (www.scottishruralawards.org) a couple of months ago and were invited to attend the Awards dinner at Dynamic Earth in Edinburgh on March 31st.
Beckie Davies (Seasonal Education Assistant) and Margaret Pool (Vice Chair Langholm Initiative) accompanied me and we didn't think we stood a chance of winning as we were amongst some very esteemed company of fantastic National Charities doing incredible work across Scotland- so we were amazed when our wee community/education project won a Highly Commended Award in the Education Category.
Thank you to everyone involved in the project including staff, volunteers, project partners and funders, we couldn't do the work we do without you.
A huge thank you to our funders Heritage Lottery, Holywood Trust, Robertson Trust and M&S.
