Stirling Observer - - FRONT PAGE - War­ren Hardie

Two Cam­bus­bar­ron young­sters have been awarded cit­i­zen­ship awards for their vol­un­teer work.

Con­nel Laing and Niall Fin­layson have jointly de­voted over 1000 hours of work to groups in the com­mu­nity.

Most of Con­nel’s vol­un­teer­ing took place at Cam­bus­bar­ron Li­brary where he worked to­wards a Young Scot Award.

Niall, who also at­tended Stir­ling High, is a Spe­cial Olympian gold medal­ist and most of his vol­un­teer­ing comes from work in sport.

The awards were pre­sented at the in­au­gu­ral meet­ing of the new Cam­bus­bar­ron Com­mu­nity Coun­cil.

Pre­sent­ing the cer­tifi­cates were Coun­cil­lor Neil Benny and Mar­ion McAl­lis­ter, chair of the com­mu­nity coun­cil.

A spokesper­son for the com­mu­nity coun­cil said: “We are aware that too of­ten we hear of the neg­a­tive acts of young peo­ple and we want to high­light and re­ward the pos­i­tive.”
