Provost Gillian Renwick presents the awards to Meadowburn Primary

This year instead of a gala queen the organisers modernised their way of thinking, and instead had three Bishopbriggs Youth Ambassadors, which this year were pupils at Meadowburn Primary School.

The newly elected East Dunbartonshire provost Gillian Renwick carried out her first duty by prese nting the community council’s Community Award to Meadowburn Primary’s de puty head Caron Doherty and awards to the Youth Ambassadors.

The community council would like to thank all the members of the public for going along and also to everyone who took part in the community day.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
