Dar­ren scoops our photo com­pe­ti­tion

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Dou­glas Dickie

There was spe­cial rea­son to cel­e­brate this Christ­mas for Dar­ren Girvan, who be­came the sec­ond win­ner of the Brian Logue Me­mo­rial Com­pe­ti­tion.

Dar­ren’s snap of Ruther­glen Town Hall at night was picked out by Brian’s fam­ily as their favourite of all our en­tries.

The 14 year old was pre­sented with the tro­phy by Re­former ed­i­tor Dou­glas Dickie just be­fore Christ­mas.

He will also re­ceive a cheque for £75 cour­tesy of Me­dia Scot­land.

Brian’s wife, An­nette, and son, Chris, made the de­ci­sion and it proved a tough one.

But An­nette said: “Brian would have loved it, it’s quite fit­ting that a pic­ture of the Town all has won.”

Chris added: “I think of my dad ev­ery time I see the Town Hall on the road home, it really stands out.”

Dar­ren, a pupil at Stonelaw High, was de­lighted to scoop top prize.

He said: “I’m really pleased my photo of Ruther­glen Town Hall was cho­sen as the win­ner and I am glad Mr Logue’s fam­ily liked it.”

Sec­ond prize of £ 50 went to West Coats pupil Marissa Cooper (9) for her snap of her fam­ily’s Christ­mas tree.

She said the tree was spe­cial to her fam­ily, and Chris said: “That is so fit­ting, it pretty much sums my dad up, he was all about his fam­ily.”

Third prize and a cheque for £25 went to 10 year old Lewis Mooney, who goes to St Bride’s Pri­mary, for his pic­ture of the Kelpies in Falkirk.

Two other en­trants also win 325 vouch­ers at Tesco Burn­side af­ter the Re­former team picked their favourites.

The prizes go to Ro­hini Ana Paul, a pupil at St Bride’s Pri­mary, and Michael Trainer from Trin­ity High.

Re­former ed­i­tor Dou­glas Dickie said: “The en­tries were fan­tas­tic, it was an ex­tremely dif­fi­cult choice for our­selves and the fam­ily.

“Well done to all the win­ners and we hope ev­ery­one who en­tered keeps on snap­ping away.”

Brian was Re­former pho­tog­ra­pher over two spells.

He died on Box­ing Day 2013 af­ter a short ill­ness.
