The sell-out event kicked-ff with a two-course meal and some fizz, and entertainment was provided to get everyone in the celebrating mood.

The night was moved from the first Saturday of Scottish Week last year to the last Friday this year and was a huge success.

The awards were held in association with Waves Radio and every nominee was a fantastic example of the good in our town.
