At the RSPB Nature of Scotland Awards 2015, on Thursday 19th November, I was joint winner of Politician of the Year Award.
The award was presented in association with The Centre for Scottish Public Policy, who highlight the following: "We are all aware that our countryside and those part of our urban environment that sustain flora and fauna of all forms and scale need to be defended, protected and enhanced. We look to citizens, campaigners, and campaigning organisations such as the RSPB to do this. However, we also need politicians in all spheres of government to channel and legislate in support of our environment. That is why the Centre of Scottish Public Policy is delighted to support this award.."

I am honoured and absolutely delighted to have received the award in recognition of my work as a councillor. I hope it will inspire people across Hillhead and beyond to get more involved in activities which support nature conservation and safeguard our environment.
