Her­itage an­gels’ turn to shine

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Front Page -

GROUPS and in­di­vid­u­als in­volved in her­itage projects in Dundee and An­gus are be­ing urged to en­ter the Scot­tish Her­itage An­gel Awards.

The awards scheme is open to groups, in­di­vid­u­als, vol­un­teers and pro­fes­sion­als across Scot­land, with en­trants hav­ing un­til Fri­day June 29, to sub­mit their nom­i­na­tions.

Launched in 2014 and funded by the An­drew Lloyd Web­ber Foun­da­tion (ALWF), and run by the Scot­tish Civic Trust in part­ner­ship with His­toric En­vi­ron­ment Scot­land (HES) and Ar­chae­ol­ogy Scot­land, the Scot­tish Her­itage An­gel Awards seek to cel­e­brate groups and in­di­vid­u­als who have gone above and be­yond in their ef­forts to pro­mote, pro­tect and, in many cases, res­cue Scot­land’s her­itage

Su­san O’Con­nor, di­rec­tor of the Scot­tish Civic Trust, said: “The Scot­tish Her­itage An­gel Awards is about hon­our­ing the con­tri­bu­tion made by those groups and in­di­vid­u­als who res­cue, record and cel­e­brate Scot­land’s his­toric build­ings and places – many of whom vol­un­teer their time. The awards also pro­vide an im­por­tant op­por­tu­nity to recog­nise the pos­i­tive dif­fer­ence that her­itage projects make to lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties all over the coun­try.

“I’m look­ing for­ward to this year’s nom­i­na­tions, which are sure to show­case the fan­tas­tic work be­ing un­der­taken to sup­port and pro­mote our his­toric en­vi­ron­ment.”
