Society chair, Alex Geddes, said: “I am delighted the team and their work has been recognised in such a way and look forward to hearing the outcome of the nomination at the ceremony.

“We have always tried to highlight the beauty of the area as it really is a hidden gem and to be recognised in such a way will now add meaning to our work in the future.

“In addition, our drive to increase tourism to the area supports our aim to improve economic development within the area and links into our community action plan to support local businesses.

“We hope now this nomination has been made this will showcase the area as never before,” he added.
